Nervous feet

Keep those feet moving!

Keep those feet moving!

One of my new sayings this season is “nervous feet.”  Every now and then I will yell out between pitches, “nervous feet out there!”  By that I mean keep your feet moving and don’t let your body become still and lazy on defense.  Infielders who move their feet a lot (thus the term nervous feet) tend to be more ready when the ball is hit their way. 

 

So far, it’s worked well for my son’s 9u team.  Every time I say it the infielders move their feet around by tapping them or just swaying side to side. 

It’s a beautiful thing!
