WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:05.000 On the baseball field, a double play if often referred to as poetry in motion. 00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:08.000 A maneuver so impressive it's worth two outs. 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:15.000 In order to produce a successful double play you need teamwork from all three guys within and making sure that 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:18.000 only focus on the job at hand and not try to do anybody else's. 00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:22.000 My name's Nathan Etheridge and I'm biology major and I play first base. 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:28.000 I started playing baseball around four years old and I chose first base because I'm always in action along with always getting throws 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:32.000 from other places and it's right there in the game the whole time. 00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:39.000 Last year we were successful in double plays because Marcus and I, we definitely had a good relationship, a good field, 00:00:39.000 --> 00:00:43.000 and we trusted each other, and were confident in our abilities to be able to turn a double play. 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:47.000 music. 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:50.000 Can you just like discuss the different types of double plays? 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:55.000 Yeah, there's your ground ball double play, which is your typical 6, 4, 3. 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:60.000 There's an unassisted double play. That's where for example if I were to receive the ball at second base, I would touch second base 00:01:00.000 --> 00:01:06.000 and throw it to first. Flyball double play. For example, if I caught the ball at second base and the runner was on 1st, I'd throw it back to 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.000 first base. Your main objective is getting that first out. 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:12.000 After that you've just got to be as quick as you can to get back to first base. 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:16.000 My name is Marcus Madden. I major in interdisciplinary studies and I play second base here at WOU. 00:01:16.000 --> 00:01:21.000 I've been playing baseball for as long as I can remember, you know, since my dad put a baseball in my hand, I've been playing 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:25.000 ever since. I chose second base because it just a spot in midfield where I can get in the lineup. 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:28.000 and help my team as much as I can. 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:32.000 I would definitely say my favorite team is Yankees, 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:36.000 with Derek Jeter as my favorite player and my favorite coach is Ken Walker. 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:40.000 I'd say my all time favorite player would probably be Ken Griffey Jr since he was Mariner, 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:45.000 I'd say Seattle Mariners is probably my favorite team too. And then for coach I'd have to go with Ken Walker. 00:01:45.000 --> 00:01:50.000 When you hear the name Derek Jeter it's hard not to think about the number of double plays he turned in his career. 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:55.000 I know Nate and Marcus are definitely looking forward to getting back on that top ten list of double plays. 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:59.000 And that's because goof coaching and hard work definitely pays off. 00:01:59.000 --> 00:01:64.000 music.
