Jody Reed provides information about shortstop play on how to turn the double play feed from 2B. This video follows the philosophy of getting the lead runner out. Jody tells the shortstop to act as if he's a first baseman, focusing on the first out, instead of focusing on the second out. Arrive at the point of the bag, ensuring that you have maximum coverage around the bag to be ready for a bad throw. Getting outs at second base will avoid the big inning and eliminate runs scoring!
