My son posted this in off topic but it probably fits better here, sorry for the double post:
All right, here is a question, as a pitcher, guys on 1st and 3rd as I take the rubber, guy on 1st goes, should I: (remember I am 14 and my team doesn’t move the ball the best)
Team yells, “step off”, I step off and turn toward the runner between 1st and 2nd, freeze him, then turn to look at guy on 3rd
Team yells, “step off”, I step off and turn and “run” at the runner between 1st and 2nd immediately, wait for my team to yell 4, if the runner at 3rd goes, turn and throw to home. If the runner doesn’t go, get as tight a pickle as possible and let it play out.
something that I am not thinking of?
situation is also that the run matters and isn’t early in the game!
What about if the run doesn’t matter, does he play it diferent?
