Effective Team Defenses

To demonstrate how concise and detailed, yet how easy-to-read "EFFECTIVE TEAM DEFENSES" is for the user, the actual text for a sacrifice bunt defense , one of 22 defensive situations covered in  this brochure, reads as follows:

... get the out at first pitcher

* The pitcher must throw a strike.  All other infielders cover their portions of the infield, field the ball when needed and listen to the catcher for the direction of the throw.

(Using the Defensive Tables: A bold, initialized and underlined player fields the ball, a bold player either receives cutoffs or calls the play. Initialized players are critical to the successful completion of the defensive play.)
