Auburn baseball has the ultimate user on its list of outfielder / infielder Brody Moore. We examine his ability to defend himself across the field.
While many who do not understand the game of baseball may think that playing different positions only catches the ball from different angles across the field, they realize more informed difficulties in playing multiple positions on the baseball diamond. That’s what makes Auburn baseball Brody Moore able to do so hard.
Moore was it literally all over the baseball diamond next to that, with pitching, catching and playing center field that avoided him in 2020. By the way, remember that the plan for 2020 was 19 games long due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Only in the Tigers’ very first series did Moore play three different positions. Another trade baseman, he started the first and third games of the opening series in his natural position, but somehow Moore managed to steal a few innings out in the field at shortstop and in the right field against the University of Illinois at the Chicago Flames. in a series, Auburn managed to sweep baseball.
In games Moore played “out of position” the team won a total of 32-1. Moore had two RBIs in these competitions.
Things continued to get silly when Moore manned the first base for the team’s 17-1 defeat of the Oakland Golden Grizzlies in the team’s fifth game. He took over the hot corner against Wright State in a 20-6 blowout.
Obviously, the common theme for Moore’s usage trends is that the team is large. Takes chances close competition games is not exactly how a coach keeps his jobs in athletics in Division I, let alone the SEC.
That said, having someone who can provide a stable glove across the field is something that can be the difference maker in a close game.
Auburn baseball has Moore in the back pocket if such a situation ever arises.
