Playing third base is all instinct, according to John Riney.
When the ball is hit down the line, you can’t do anything but react.
“You don’t do any of the work,” said Riney, who just finished his senior year at Bethlehem High School. “It’s just your body reacting to the ball.”
He’s always exhibited a great knack for responding to wherever the ball is hit, although he started off his career at shortstop.
