Yost described the game as “a baseball IQ test.”
On your phone or tablet, you will be given the option of playing any of the nine defensive positions on a baseball field.
The game then fires off different scenarios, and you’re supposed to touch the base where you’d throw the ball.
“You’ve got 30 seconds to answer as many as you can,” Yost said.
There are different levels and things get progressively more difficult. Is the infield in or back? Is the ball hit to your left or right? Is the runner fast, medium or slow? Is it a scenario in the first six innings or the last three?
“With nine positions, we have over 110,000 different scenarios, Yost said. “It just teaches kids to think, teaches them to think quick and where to properly throw the ball. Even college coaches said, ‘I would make my kids do that.’”
