St Louis Cardinals 2nd baseman
Lets say there is a man on first base, and the batter gets an infield ground hit that is picked off by the shortstop. The shortstop throws the ball to the 2nd baseman who steps on 2nd base before the runner a at 1st can reach it. This is a force out as the 2nd baseman does not have to tag the incoming runner. If the shortstop caught the ball before the ball hit the ground and can throw the ball to the 1st baseman before the runner at 1st can get back and put his foot on the bag, then that would also would be a force out.
If you're talking about the person who tags you to get you out is 1st baseman 2nd baseman and 3rd baseman.
The Yankee's second baseman is Robinson Cano.
1st Baseman 2nd Baseman 3rd Baseman Pitcher Catcher Short Stop Batter
You have your catcher, pitcher, 1st baseman, 2nd baseman, short stop, 3rd baseman, right fielder (behind 1st), left fielder (behind 3rd), and you center fielder (behind 2nd)
It's when the 2nd baseman comes up behind the pitcher and winds up the key on his back before he pitches.
1st baseman (to the left and up and little), 2nd baseman (between 1st base and 2nd base), or right outfielder (to the left and back).
There are 9 positions (Pitcher, Catcher, 1st baseman, 2nd baseman, 3rd baseman, Left Fielder, Right Fielder, and Center Fielder, and Shortstop.)
When we played, it referred to throwing the ball around all the infield bases; example; after a player is thrown out at first base; the first baseman will often then throw it to the 3rd baseman upon completion of the play; then the 3rd baseman to the 2nd baseman and the 2nd baseman to the shortstop. It's sort of a way to keep the infielders all warmed up and attentive in between plays. Hope this helps!!
1st baseman, 2nd baseman, 3rd baseman, and shortstop, are the generally accepted positions. Though some people argue that the pitcher and catcher are included in the list.
YES! A very weird situation has to happen though. With runners on 2nd and 3rd and 1 out, a line drive is caught by the 2nd baseman. The runner on 3rd runs on contact (without tagging). The runner on 2nd can't get back to the base. Instead of just tagging 2nd base for the 3rd out, the 2nd baseman runs after the runner and tags him AFTER the runner on 3rd touches home. When the 2nd baseman went after the runner, it became a "pickle" situation. The other runner's run counts (if it was scored before the tag) unless the defense appeals to 3rd where the runner left early and therefore would be the 4th out. Confusing, but true. 1st out- before the situation 2nd out- Caught line drive 3rd out- tag of runner 4th out- appeal to 3rd where runner left early.
In most cases, the second baseman will be covering 2nd base on a hit or fly out to LF.
No. A runner is out anytime while running to a base if he makes contact with the ball or the glove that the ball is in. On a pop-fly, a player with the ball only needs to touch the base the runner left from if the runner did not tag-up to the bag after the ball was caught.
Mickey Morandini left the Phillies after the 1997 season. The Phillies 2nd baseman in 1998 was Mark Lewis.
Catcher, pitcher, shortstop, first baseman,2nd baseman and 3rd basemen. Center field, right field and left field.
about 9 people including the catcher,pitcher,1rst baseman,2nd baseman ,shortstop,3rd baseman, right fielder, left fielder and center fielder.
6 players while on the baseball field do not belong to the outfield, this is excluding the batter. The 6 that are not part of the outfield are: pitcher, catcher, 1st baseman, 2nd baseman, short stop, and 3rd baseman.
center fielders are generally the best hitters, middle infielders and catchers are the worst hitters. (generally, there are many exceptions)
Freddy Sanchez is a 2nd baseman for the San Francisco Giants.
