I got the inspiration for this [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]coaching[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] from Jim. It includes some fresh ideas for [tag]baserunning drills[/tag]. Try it out and let me know what you think!
GAME BASERUNNING DRILL
Have a [tag]runner[/tag] on each base, and a runner in each batter’s box (5 total runners)
[tag]Coach[/tag] is on mound acting as a [tag]pitcher[/tag] in the stretch. No ball is needed.
Coach initiates drill by feigning a pitch.
On the pitch the following runners will take secondary lead then advance
accordingly: (except players in batters boxes)
Left hand Batters Box: Runs out a ground ball to first and stays at 1st.
Right hand batters Box: Runs out a double and stays at 2nd.
Runner on 1st: Runner goes 1st to 3rd and stays at 3rd.
Runner on 2nd: Runner goes 2nd to home.
Runner on 3rd: Runner simulates a fly ball, tags and scores.
Run through the drill till all players start from BOTH batters boxes.
This drill works all [tag]baserunning[/tag] situations quickly and efficiently.
