The only tricky part about this play is when the first baseman catches the ball directly in the base path. To avoid throwing the ball in line with the runner, the first baseman should continue forward after catching the ball to get on the infield side of the base path before throwing. That is a more natural movement as opposed to trying to back up to the outfield side of the base path after catching.
