On this episode of The SIS Baseball Podcast, Mark Simon (@markasimonsays) is joined by Athletics third baseman Matt Chapman (@mattchap6) and Giants first base/outfield/baserunning coach Antoan Richardson (@arichardson242).
Matt talks about his favorite childhood defensive play (0:59), reacclimating to third base after last year’s hip injury (4:33), and the challenge of catching pop ups in Oakland and line drives from up close (6:16).
Antoan talks about how the Giants position their outfielders (19:16), breaks down a play in which the Giants’ smart baserunning approach gained them an advantage (24:37), and discusses the concept of dissecting the field (28:47).
