Jody Reed gives us insights on where and why infielders play in different defensive situations. Ideally someone in the dugout has responsibility for infield depth and positioning. Positions are usually described as 1,2,3 and 4. Jody explains what this nomenclature means and what the infielders are doing defensively at each of these depths. This video will instruct both coaches and players on defensive positioning.
