What I remember seeing is a guy blocking second base as the ball game in.
A runner that slid in but didn’t try to blow up the second baseman when with all rights and past coaching he would have layed out the second baseman with a hard slid
then a middle infielder “maybe” throwing his arm out as the runner tried to get up fast...i assume this is because the throw to third was off line and maybe it was possible to steal third.
JB... did the throw get by the third baseman? did he field it clean?
then I saw the second baseman push the runner in the back from behind..
JB has posted on this tread and it’s interesting he didn’t address how a good baseball coach would have taught him to take back the bag if the infielder was trying to block...
I can only share what I was taught...and taking out that fielder real hard would have been in the group of knocking down an on deck hitter standing by the box trying to time your pitch as you warmed up.
In other words... I was taught there is a HUGE price for an infielder to pretend like he was a catcher in the old days blocking home on a play at second... It’s like a runner coming in high on a double play...you try to lay him out as hard as you legally can.
So JB... what were you taught to do to a middle infielder trying to do that (block the bag) at second? I think you played some level of baseball. and I highly doubt you were taught anything other then...do whatever you need to do to let that infielder know he doesn’t own the bag
