Purpose

Practice basic baserunning, stealing, tag-ups and other baserunning strategies

Set Up

  • Players line up along the backstop behind home plate.
  • The first player in line steps into the batters box

Instructions

  1. On the coach’s signal, the player pretends to swing, then runs full speed from home plate to first base.
  2. Run through the base, slow down and return to first base.
  3. On the first base coach’s signal, run from first to third.
  4. Jog home then join the back of the line.
  5. Using the same setup – Have each player run out a double or triple. Then simulate scoring from second (or third) off a base hit.

Coaching Tips

  • Set up an assistant coach or parent at each base to give instruction along the way.
