What Is Inside baseball?- -:
I will tell you — lt Is -imply., doing the right thing at the right
time. If anyone tells you anything different, he Is "stringing you."
When a ball player Is a good inside player, he is simply a man
who knows how to play the game In unison with the other members
of the team, so the most good will result from his efforts.
There are many ball players who are Individual stars and are
constantly looking out for their own batting and fielding records, un
mindful of the team winning or losing a game.
Such men are anything but Inside players. They may be great
hitters and grand fielders, but their work does not count so much
as the player who is not so good with the bat or in the field, but
who can and does play the game a lth his teammates so the team
wins games. - '"!-• *
Inside play is that part of baseball pertaining to signals and
knowledge of what to do when an opportunity comes up for an un
usual play. Some players are mechanical and cannot think for them
selves In a game. Another player in quick-witted, and can figure
out just what to do when the ball comes to him In an unusual man
ner, despite the fact that he has had no opportunity to figure out in
advance what to do under the condition confronting him.
A good Inside player is one who loses sight of himself for the
sake of the team. He is the man who can go to bat and forget about
the opportunity he has to make a great reputation by smashing the
ball far away and winning the game then and there, because the
manager thinks it wise to lay down a bunt.
The infielder has much mere opportunity to pull off Inside
plays than the outfielder. There are times, of course, when It is
up to the man in the distant pasture to make some play that Is out
of the ordinary and show his knowledge of the game. The greatest
plays come up on the infield, however, and for this reason a man
may be invaluable to a team as an Infielder, because of his quick
thinking, even if he cannot hit the ball for a high average or even
A good inside player is a man who Is constantly figuring out
what the other team is trying to do, and planning to checkmate them
In some way. A
The player who is not a good inside player nowadays Is not re- ',
garded as of much account In the game as played In the major '
leagues, and In the more important of the minor leagues, where the
game is very fast.
There are, of course, some notable examples of players who are '
not regarded as Inside players, who are invaluable to their teams. !
This Is true because they are wonderful hitters or perhaps great i
As a general thing, however, the player who does not play a
good Inside game does not last long. The fellows who do not study
the game from every angle soon fall by the wayside. Every young
player should make baseball as thorough a study as the school boy '
does his subjects, with a view of being valuable to the team, rather
than to develop into an individual star.
