Coach John Tamargo Jr shares some tips on how to successfully start the double play as a middle infielder in this segment. The two types of balls that you will see are the balls up the middle and the balls in the hole, the further you get away from 2nd base the harder the feed has to be to start the double play. Remember the double play is the pitchers best friend, but the first out is the important one.
