WK's Coach's Tips

The Glove and Positioning

Let's move on from hitting and spend some time on defense. The last time we talked about fielding was way back in 1996 (see the Coach's Tip Archives above). I think it's time we re-visit this critical part of the game. Let's start with the infield.

The Glove

It seems almost fundamental, but make sure that the glove being used is appropriate for the postion.

The overriding consideration for each position is hand size, comfort level, and aptitiude.

Fielding Position

That's it for now. In the next session, we'll continue with infield development.

Keep your head in the game!
