A cut off is a defensive strategy in baseball in which a ball is hit to an outfielder and is passed to the cutoff man in order to tag a player out.

What is a Cutoff Man in Baseball?

The cutoff man is used when the ball has been hit to an outfielder and is being passed back to a baseman. The cutoff man moves into position when a ball has been hit into the outfield, and receives the ball from an outfielder. This can be done to make the outfielder’s throw shorter and more effective.
