Coach John Tamargo Jr discusses the different positioning for middle infielders with regards to playing deep versus shallow in this video tip. Infielders tend to play deeper in the infield dirt when there is nobody on base because it gives them more range, yet when there are runners on 1st or 1st and 2nd they play midway in the dirt to give them a better chance at turning two. The most important thing a infielder can do is knock the ball down and make an out, putting yourself in the right position will give you a better chance of making the play.
