What base has the most force plays?
Explain why you think so.




Thanks for playing. Don’t forget part 2…explain why you think so.


I’m also going to go with 1 because the first baseman rarely has to tag the runner, unless the runner makes a move toward second. I believe the “tricky” part of this question is that we don’t typically think of the play at first as being a “force play.”


The answer is 2nd because the play at first is not a force play. A runner is forced by the batter/runner and can’t be the batter / runner.
