First Baseman

1) Make the other infielders look good because of your great glove on thrown balls.

2) Be in good cut-off position.

3) Take all foul pop-ups on the first base side.

4) Block all throws in the dirt. Don't let runners advance.

5) Let catcher and middle infielders now if runner at first is stealing.

6) Let the pitcher know to step off the rubber if the runner has a big lead or if there is a forced balk situation.

7) Let the catcher know if his throw to first base should be inside or outside.

8) May want to protect the line in late innings depending on the game situation.

9) Be in a good "ready position."

10) Back up the throw from the catcher to the pitcher covering home.
