Fielding practice, I believe. Also, possibly, a way of showing off a little for the fans. I believe that it's an age old tradition meant to keep the fielders' arms warm during the middle of the game.

The ball is usually not passed to the first baseman because a first baseman is involved in many plays. It's an old tradition that's still in use.

No, the word tossed is not an adverb.The word tossed is a verb, as it describes an action.

When the refree is undecided and there is a toss up between two players. Basically the ball is tossed in the air between two players and the first person to grab it owns it.
