How to Play Second Base

Excerpt from How to Play Second Base By many base ball men, second base is considered the easiest of the infield positions to play, with the exception of first base. The chief reason for this impression is that the drives the second baseman must handle are seldom so hot as those the third base man and shortstop receive, while he has less of the onerous duty of throwing long distances. The shortstop and third baseman have to field the ball over greater reaches of ground than the second baseman, and from the very nature of their positions, must make their throws more rapidly. For a natural ball player, second base involves less wear and tear than the other infield positions, and the life on the diamond of players in this berth is usually of more considerable duration. The strain on the arms is not nearly so great and this essential to an infielder is often overworked and ruined early in the careers of shortstops and third basemen.
