Coach Bill Dancy shares a couple different ways the first baseman can hold the runner at first base and how he gets into good fielding position if the ball is delivered to the plate. The first baseman needs to set himself up so that if the pitcher picks off he can make a play and help the team get out of a jam. Working on your footwork during batting practice is a great way to work on your timing and practice your shuffle away from the bag.
