Cutoff & Relays

A plea to coaches of 12-15 year old teams …. please implement and teach the standard cutoff/relay system that young players can learn and take into high school baseball with them.  It makes watching high school baseball a lot more fun.  Not sure I can watch another pitcher standing in the middle of the field or a first baseman hanging around first.  Everyone has a job to on every play.  For everyone except catchers, this means sprinting somewhere 90% of the time once the ball is in play.

I forget where I got the attached graphics, probably picked them up from somewhere a decade ago. They are pretty good.  Please share them with your players.  They need to know every position.  It makes watching baseball a lot more fun too.
