How NOT to be Chase Utley’d at second base
Today’s video post is a two-part (33 minute) seminar related to the infamous Chase Utley slide at second base during last year’s NLCS between the Dodgers and the Mets. Part 1 deals with the ways a slide can become dirty. Part 2 demonstrates a variety of ways middle infielders can protect themselves so they do not become the next Ruben Tejada.
Note: At least twice during this seminar I said it was Wilmer Flores who got hit when I should have said Ruben Tejada. Sorry. I didn’t feel like filming it again so that’s why I’m posting the seminar today for everyone.
