Like virtually everything else in baseball, if you want to improve yourself as a shortstop, start improving your footwork.  I’ve said it at least a hundred times on my blog that as you get older the game gets faster.  If you cannot keep pace with the game, your career ends.  It’s as simple as that.  Improving your footwork allows you to be more efficient and therefore quicker in your movements.

Today’s video post shows and explains the proper footwork for shortstops when covering second base on pickoff plays.
