Coach Bill Dancy shows us how to hold the runner on first base in the halfway back position in this video tip. Sometimes there are certain situations where we as first basemen need to keep the runner close without standing on top of the bag, using the halfway position still gives us the range we need in case a ball is hit our way. The ultimate goal is to keep the runner honest, and try to prevent him from taking an extra base in the event of a hit.
