How to Turn a Double Play

View group questions.

To print this group, add it to a test.

Step 1: Field the ball
First things first, you can’t turn a double play if you do not stop the baseball.

Step 2: Flip/Throw the ball to the base or take it yourself.
Determine whether it will be easier for you to toss the ball to the base or take it yourself. If you throw the ball, your job is done and the rest falls on the other player. If you take it yourself the rest is on you.

Step 3: Tag the bag
Make sure you tag the bag or you don’t get the out.

Step 4: Throw to first base
Execute a quick transition from the tag and make a nice accurate throw to first base. You need to act quickly because the move will be close. Help your first baseman out with an accurate throw.

Step 5: Run off the field or fist bump
If there are three outs after the play, run off the field. If there are only two outs, give your partner a nice fist bump or high-five for executing properly, and then get ready for the next play.
