  First baseman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
First base, or 1B, is the first of four stations on a baseball diamond which must be touched in succession by a base runner in order to score a run for that player's team.
Also, first base is often referred to as "the other hot corner"—the "hot corner" being third base—and he must have reflexes to field the hardest hit balls down the foul line, mainly by left-handed batters.
Because the nature of play at first base often requires first baseman to stay close to the bag to hold runners in place or to reach the bag before the batter, first baseman are not typically expected to have the speed, agility and quickness required of infielders and outfielders.

 Article : My First BASE Rig
The guiding principle for selecting a first BASE rig is "Keep it Simple." If you are faced with a choice between a simpler and a more complex option, always choose the simpler one.
Although almost all BASE specific risers meet certain criteria (type VIII, LRT style toggles, etc), and you should be fine sticking with whatever riser and toggle system comes standard with your first rig, it is slightly better to purchase toggles and risers separately, to allow a wider choice in available options.
BASE toggles are available with either standard (stiffened cloth) or metal pin toggle stubs.

 Fantasy Keepers: First Basemen -- The Hardball Times
To recap what I said in that first article: my thoughts on keepers are that you should consider what you expect to get out of them in the next three seasons, but should be mostly concerned with what you think they will do next year.
Whether you think he'll be 25 years old next year or not, there's no disputing that he should be the best (or at least among the best) fantasy hitter at first base over the next three years, and probably much longer than that.
First, this season was his first full season, and he's already 27 years old.

He won four Gold Gloves, but Hodges won three of his own (including in 1957, when the award was combined for both leagues), although he was more than halfway through his career before the award was introduced.
In Win Shares, Bill James rates Garvey an A and Hodges a B as defensive players, but 1) defensive stats for first basemen are quirky, and 2) Hodges' defensive reputation was sensational.

 New York Daily News - Baseball - First base Piazza's first place   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Art Howe revealed yesterday that Piazza, who started at first base for the third time in four games last night against the Astros, will catch roughly two times a week.
If I would have known the way I feel after a couple of days playing first, I probably would have thought about doing it a few years ago.' Just playing the two nights in a row (at first base) and then getting behind the plate (Friday), I feel fresher," Piazza said.
Piazza also believes he's at the point where Howe can move him from catcher to first late in games he starts behind the plate rather than removing him, and keep him at first in other games without requiring a late-game defensive substitution.

Jones and his troublesome right hamstring might soon shift from left field to first base, which would help the Braves replace injured Adam LaRoche while enabling Jones to put less stress on his legs.
Jones, 32, came up through the minors as a shortstop but played primarily at third base in his first seven full seasons (1995-2001) in the majors.
LaRoche is expected to miss about two months with a separated shoulder, and 45-year-old first baseman Julio Franco has missed six starts with a sore back.

 Jef Raskin - Coanda Effect: Understanding Why Wings Work
The reasoning--though incomplete--is based on the Bernoulli effect, which correctly correlates the increased speed with which air moves over a surface and the lowered air pressure measured at that surface.
Looking at the diagram, we see that the air at the point labeled A will be moving faster than the the air at the point labeled B, because in the first case the motion of the ball's surface is added to the ball's overall velocity, while in the second it is subtracted.
To the left of the pitcher is first base, to his right is third base.
