Best Answer

The first baseman has a lot of responsibilities. They have to catch all the balls that their fielders throw to get runners out. They have to field all the bad throw of their fielders. They have to act as the cutoff player when a ball hit to the outfield comes home. They are responsible for fielding bunts and throwing girls out at first.
