Regardless of the situation, if the ball is hit on the ground to the right side of the infield the pitcher's duty is to run to first base and be ready to take a throw. In this situation, there are two possible actions the first baseman could take ... 1) Throw the ball to second base in an attempt to start a double play. If this is the case, the first baseman will need to turn his body towards second base to throw. This means it will take him longer to get back to first base to take the return throw. If the pitcher is hustling towards first base chances are he will get there before the first baseman will. 2) Throw the ball home in an attempt to start a double play but at least to get the lead runner and stop a run from scoring. In this case, the first baseman will turn his body towards home plate to make the throw. He may be able to get back to first base in time to take the return throw and if he can, he will yell to the pitcher that he is going to take the throw from the catcher. In this case, it is usually easier for the first basemen to take the throw as the pitcher's momentum takes him away from the throw and he will have to turn his body when he gets to first base to face the catcher. Of course, all this depends on where the first baseman fields the ball. If he fields it very close to first base, he will cover for the return throw regardless of whether he throws to second or throws home.
