What if the infielder drops the ball and Pauly is thrown out at first because of no effort? There more specific. And it doesn't matter if a runners or or not. Run your ass to first. I don't care if your name is Paul Konerko or Joe DiMaggio. Hell, Fisk lambasted Sanders for not running a ball out. Why because he knows what is expected of a ball player. Hustle
