Footwork for 1st and 3rd cutoffs

A cutoff play is one of those little things that is a thing of beauty when it is done well.  When it’s not, it’s pretty much a train wreck.  Very painful to watch.  Unfortunately, it is not often practiced and even when it is, the footwork involved is often under addressed.  Like most everything else in the game, if you master the footwork, most everything else comes much easier.

Today’s video tip is for 1st and 3rd basemen who are interested in improving their footwork and overall performance on cutoff relays to home plate.
