      Not too sure what you're asking. Usually after a strikeout, the catcher throws down to third, he throws to short, he throws to second, and then back to third. Some might do it different.

      After you throw a guy out, point to the sky like it was all god's doing. Maybe you could even give a Kirk Gibson fist pump after the throw. That should go over well. Make sure you have a can of chew in your back pocket to complete the ballplayer look. Sometimes, if you know a player on the other team, you can even get a game of tic tac toe going in the dirt from inning to inning.

      The dirt swipe with your foot, the spit and rub in the glove, and the grabbing of your crotch are all staples.

      Umm...ok, jk about all of that. What exactly are you asking though?

        You need more help in the grammar and spelling department than you do playing second base.

                So are all dodger fans rotten jerks like this? There seem to be quite a few here. Just kidding, bro, good luck on your baseball career.

                  I've seen a lot worse grammar than his around here. He was being colloquial, so he shouldn't be judged by the usual standards we apply, or at least have applied since we completed our graduate courses at Oxford.

                  But, the issue may well be credulity and consideration. How do you start playing baseball on a competitive team at age 15? Is this recreational ball? A high school team?

                  And you really should be clear about what you're asking, and why. If you're new to the game, what happens when the ball is being thrown around after the play is the last thing you should be worrying about. The magnitude of what you likely need to know for baseball being played at your age is pretty great. You probably need a book on high level infield play. Does anyone here have a book recommendation on infield play for the BlueBleeder (Tommy Lasorda Jr.???) here? Then, if you're still mystified about a specific point, go ahead and come back here to ask questions.

                  And don't rag on the Tigers; they do better on a dollars-per-win basis than the Dodgers do.
                  sigpicIt's not whether you fall -- everyone does -- but how you come out of the fall that counts.

                    LOL Oh no the Dodgers are alright... My other login name wasn't workin so I used my this one, I am a devoted member of the West Coast Red Sox Nation lol ... I got Everything else down... I know where I need to be in every situation and all that other stuff. I read Baseball for Dummies by Joe Morgan lol. It's a good book you should read it even if you aren't a dummy. If you like Baseball you should get this if you don't have it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/076...lance&n=283155


                    And sorry about the ambiguity of the original question.

                      Ahem, if I may. If people do around the horn, just follow in the formation. But when there are men on base, around the horn shouldn't be an option. The around the horn is a way players keep thier arms flexible. And all you Tiger haters up there, you guys are correct in your statements .

                        While it is understandable you being offended by his commenting on your spelling and grammar, your reply was way out of line and very much out of place on this site. Insults of any nature, by anybody, are not tolerated.
                        You've come to the right place for advice.

                          Ok, I'm sorry about my post. I make some or "sum" grammar mistakes sometimes. I just think that you should not do it on purpose to save time. It makes threads harder to read.
