In this baseball drill, Derek Jeter talks about the importance of fielding the baseball and throwing it to first base quickly.
Derek: We're going to try going left and right. Now you always want to try to get in front of it, if you can. That's why I asked if you can dance, because when you're dancing you're supposed to move your feet a lot, right? So it's the same thing when you're playing defense. You've always got to make sure you move your feet. So I'm going to go a little bit left, a little bit right, and you're throwing to first, so you've got to make sure you get around it, all right? You can throw to him. If you hurt him, you extra points, all right? Ready? Nice. Oh, you've been practicing, huh? There you go.
Man: Is there anything negative to see?
Derek: They've been doing, they're doing good.
Derek: So you guys look like you're doing pretty good.
