Starting with the fielding stance, Coach Buck demonstrates how he trains his middle infielders to work groundballs on both sides. He demonstrates the left-right footwork foundation that makes it easier to read hops and gets your infielders attacking the ball, glove work with funneling and picks, and footwork for all situations.
Buck thoroughly covers double-play feeds from both short and second, including the flip feed, dart feeds, jump turn, in the hole, and knee feeds from second. He also shares a specific method for determining double-play depth for each middle infielder on a player-by-player basis.
Additional coverage includes eliminating lateral movement, drills for creating fielding rhythm, the eye-ball in the glove approach, fielding slow rollers, reducing steps between fielding and throwing, picking up balls with the bare-hand, a technique for instantly counteracting a bobbled ball, and the importance of having a short memory.
Every segment employs Coach Buck's proven "drill-progression" approach, developing proper movements and instilling confidence and competence through a logical series in which each drill builds on the one before.
More than a demonstration of drills, this is a successful coaching approach proven to create improvement!

I recommend this video - there is quite a bit of useful information here. The coach communicates well and describes each drill, followed by examples executed by his two middle-infielders. The drills are spot on. I like the progression of building from one drill to the next. Although these drills are perhaps best suited for 12+ yo players, I coach a 10u travel baseball team, and have used these drills quite successfully in teaching footwork and glovework when fielding ground balls, as well as skills required around the 2nd base bag (footwork and glovework when turning double plays, etc).
