Stepping in front of the dugout, Connie waved his card in familial 1 fashion before the sound camera and explained to the public for Ihe first, lime what his hokus-riokus means. "When I raise the scorccard high, lliat means I 'want my out- llsld to move," he said. "Say, for instance, thai \vc arc using a fast ball pitcher. This means that the opposition batters will lie swinging al the ball late. Jiatters usually pull curve ball pitching and swing late at fast balls. So when a right-handed hatter steps to the plate while we have a speed ball pitcher on the niannd, we move our right fielder ;i!)cl center fielder toward the right field foul line. Because \vhca a vight-haiutcd batter swings late he is likely to hit the ball lo right or light-center field." Nn Complicated System Mack explained that when lie wanted the left fielder to move nlso, he just raised his scorccard high and waved it toward right! field. [ "If we want only the right and center fielders (o move, we wave the Ecorecard with tile right hand while holding the left hand up with (lie palm out," he said. "This is a sign to the left fielder to stay wiicrc he is." I When Mack desires his infield to I move around,'' he makes similar motions but holds the scorecard low. If he is satisfied with the IJositions his players have taken-if they have diagnosed the batter correctly, lie holds out Ins hands with the palms down, signaling them lo stay put.
