Just a quick question do you ever get guys out picking over to first? and if you do is it a close play where the first baseman tags the runner out or do you catch guys in a rundown? I’m just wondering which happens the most with you guys. I was at our varsity’s baseball game and our pitcher had the slowest spin move to first base he’d spin then wait like a second then throw it just to keep the guy back. Then he did it to one guy and he got him in a rundown. It was the craziest thing it was really casual like his intention was to get him in a rundown and he didn’t throw hard to first or he wans’t quick he just caught the guy with a big lead.
I’m thinking that you shouldn’t worry about picking the guy off just keeping him back when your pitching i see too many pitchers throw the ball away trying to get a guy with a big lead.
What’s your opinion on this matter? Try to pick him off or just keep him back and focus on pitching?
