You have the ultimate baseball player! (Um. Why does he look exactly like Ryan Theriot?) Baseball's Signals Corps Is Rarely at Ease During the seemingly routine situations of a baseball game, like the one shown below, a flurry of covert activity takes place in the seconds before every pitch. Players and coaches signal each other for pitches, plays and positioning. all the while trying to deceive the opposition and steal from them. THE SITUATION: The game is tied. There is a runner on 1st base, there are less than two outs and a right-handed hitter is at bat. OFFENSE ***** OFFENSIVE SIGNALS DEFENSE .--- DEFENSIVE SIGNALS 1 MANAGER: The brains 3D BASE COACH: The transmitter RUNNER AND HITTER: The receivers 4 1ST BASE COACH: Stealer and decoder Chooses the best play for the situation - a sacrifice bunt, a steal, a hit and run- and relays a sign to the 3d base coach. Relays messages from the manager to the hitter and the runner. Signals: Before every pitch, he gives a series of signals. Most are fake. meant to conceal the real signal from the other team. The "indicator signal means the real sign will follow. Once the sign is given, the batter and base runner relay a sign back to the coach to confirm the sign has been received.

SIGNAL SHORTSTOP TO CUTFIELD MANAGER TO 30 BASE CO TTER TO *** .. 3 BASE COACH 1 RUNNER D BASE COACH CATCHER TO PITCHER 2 CATCHER Relay station After receiving the pitch sign from the manager, the catcher will relay it to the pitcher, usually signaling with his fingers. 1 MANAGER The brains Often çalls the pitches, relaying his preference to the catcher. 3 SHORTSTOP: Mid-range transmitter Reads the signal from the catcher to the pitcher and relays to the outfield what pitch to expect. He indicates to the 2d baseman which of them will cover if the runner breaks for 2d on the pitch. If the pitch will be off-speed, and the batter seems likely to pull the ball toward him, the shortstop will signal the 2d baseman to vacate his position to cover 2d. This signal, concealed behind his glove, is an open or closed mouth. 4 DUGOUT COACH: Super sleuth Watches the entire offensive signaling operation - studies it, deconstructs it, classifies it and puts it away for use at the proper time. SHORTSTOP BASEBALL POSITIONS CENTER FIELDER Outfield position that has to cover the most ground on fly balls. RIGHT FIELDER Outfield position with the longest throw to home plate. LEFT FIELDER Outfield position with the shortest thrown to home plate. SHORTSTOP Infield positon that plays between third and second base.
