True or False?

There’s 1 out and a runner on 1st. The left handed batter hits a sure double down the line that the right fielder gets to quickly.  After gathering the ball, the throw should go directly in to the shortstop covering at second base.

True or False?

With 1 out and no one on base, there’s a ball hit in the 3-4 hole. Both the first and second baseman give chase and the pitcher sprints over to cover 1st. On this play, the catcher should make sure to get down the first base line to backup the throw to first base.

True or False?

There’s runners on 1st and 2nd with two outs in the second inning. With a full-count, the batter chops a swinging bunt down the third base line. The third baseman charges hard and bare-hands the ball, knowing it will take a perfect throw and a stumble by the runner to get him out. With 2 outs, the 3rd baseman should throw the ball to first and try to make the play anyways.
