Teams seldom practice mistakes, yet the ability to recover from an error or miscue might be the difference between a win or loss at game time.
RED lines are direction of simulated hits and ball throws
BLUE lines show defensive movement which animates.
BLACK lines are direction of baserunner movement.
One of the most common errors in baseball happens at 1st base. Either the fielder rushes his throw and it goes off line or else the first baseman mishandles an in between hop.
Part of every practice should be to improve the skill level for the infielders, but there will still be times when a throw is rushed or a grip is not right ... the ball will tail or sail.
The purposes of this drill is to minimize the damage ... to keep the batter or any other runner from taking an extra bag.
