When a pitcher has no runners on base but then gives up a single, he turns and points to the second baseman/SS before getting ready for his next pitch. I always wondered what this point is all about, I think it has to do with confirming who will cover second in the event of a steal, but somebody verify.
He's asking who'll cover 2nd on a comebacker/potential double-play ball.

Ok, I'll bite...here's another one.
Since most of us have never been it it, does anyone know the sq footage of the Red Sox clubhouse? We hear that it is so small, but compared to what? What is the sq footage of the average baseball clubhouse?
it's about the size of a typical 1-BR apt, if you knocked down all the walls.
most of the newer parks have huge clubhouses, and I mean HUGE.
the one at Coors Field is like a hotel ballroom, but much better furnished.
I remember Jim Leyland complaining that it was TOO big and everyone was too far apart.
of course, that didn't stop him from sleeping there a few nights.
