When I was around 10 years old, my father showed me how major league infielders decoy base runners.  I was fascinated.  Knowing me, I’m sure I went right outside and starting practicing it.  Unfortunately, decoying runners is too often something that is not passed on to middle infielders until much later in their careers.  Some never learn it.  When I watch high school and even college games, I see multiple chances for middle infielders to decoy runners and they don’t.  Learning when and how to decoy runners takes time but the basics are passed on in today’s video tip.
