  Second baseman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also called 2B, or second bagger, the second baseman often possesses quick hands and feet, needs the ability to get rid of the ball quickly, and must be able to make the pivot on a double play.
Second basemen must be quick on their feet to hold the runner on base, back up the shortstop on all throws from the catcher, cover first base on bunted balls, and to field the position to either side.
In fact, second basemen are required to have the greatest range of any infielder, since they have to field balls closer to the first baseman who is often holding runners on, or moving towards the base to cover.

 Second baseman - BR Bullpen
The second baseman (abbreviated 2B and position 4 when scoring) is an infielder who normally plays close to and on the right field side of second base.
The second baseman is usually the pivot man on double plays started by the shortstop and third baseman and occasionally on plays started by the catcher, pitcher, or first baseman.
Because the second baseman's position is closer to first base than the shortstop's or third baseman's, he is not required to have as strong an arm as the other infielders.
