    Gotcha. I take it that was in reference to positioning for the double play.

    started a topic Little League Infield Positioning

    Little League Infield Positioning

    We just started All-Star practice for our 12 yr old Little League team. We are trying to work on consistent infield depth depending on situation. I would like to know anyone's thoughts on the different positioning for little league, 60 foot bases.

    Normal Depth
    Double Play Depth

    Ours currently-
    Normal Depth Position
    1st base- 5 x 5 steps
    2nd base-7 x 8 steps
    Shortstop- 7 x 8 steps
    3rd base- 5 x 2-3 steps

    Double Play Depth
    1st base- 5 x 5 steps
    2nd base-5 x 6 steps
    Shortstop- 5 x 6 steps
    3rd base- 5 steps even with bag

    Thanks,

    Coach O
