Best Answer

That situation sounds somewhat similar to what is called the rotation play or wheel play in bunt situations. During a bunt situation, usually the first baseman and third baseman cover the bunt while the second baseman will cover first base and the shortstop will cover third base. In the situation you describe it sounds like the shortstop would be the defensive player to cover third base.
