Baseball Signs: The Game's Secret Underbelly
In the next fifteen seconds dozens of secret signals will fly back and forth between managers, coaches, and players determining such things as pitch type, location, infield-outfield depth and position, bag coverage, take, hit, bunt, bunt and run, suicide squeeze, hit and run, run and hit, steal, double steal, or delayed steal. A baseball game is like a beehive; from afar, it is pastoral, scenic, and quietly purring; but when you zoom in tight there is an organized chaos of communication buzzing all over the place seemingly in a million directions. During the Civil War, seaman communicated ship-to-ship with flags, troops on the ground used hand signals during battle, and baseball players combined both starting a tradition that would be practiced and homed in this country over the next years. My first little league coach incorporating the latter had three signs. He would go through a series of dummy signs like brushing his arms, touching his face, his cap etc…, but none of it would mean anything. If he finished his dummy sequence and ended up with both hands in his front pocket, it meant bunt.
Baseball signs hold the utmost importance in the sport. Third base coaches not only give baseball signs to the runners on base, but they relay signs to the batter at home plate as well.
