It depends, in little league, the shortstop is the rule. Usually, the shortstop will cover for a left handed hitter, and the second baseman will cover for a right handed hitter.

What is a delayed steal?

The delayed steal is a method of taking base using more of technique, then actual speed or a good jump to get to second base. The key is that the middle infielders are not checking their base after every pitch with a man on first base. In other words, a middle infielder must take a few steps towards second after every pitch. When the middle infielders do not do so, second base is ripe to be taken via the delay.
