The topic of baserunning is one of the most overlooked areas in teaching baseball. This DVD can help improve baserunning by working on it everyday in practice, starting at home plate. After contact, players must quickly get down the line to first base. Hitting balance will allow a good start down the base path. Thus, the simulated hitting drill should be worked on each day in practice to develop good habits. Turning at first, depending on where the ball is located, is a necessary skill taught in this presentation. Once at first, Stricklin focuses on the leadoff and getting good jumps. He demonstrates the tennis ball drill to help improve jumps when stealing second base. Techniques for executing the hit-and-run are explained with drill work. Stricklin teaches players how to run from first to third safely. Stricklin also teaches proper fundamentals on taking leads off second and third base. The baserunning essentials presented in this DVD add an element to your team that most lack. Proper execution of baserunning teaching points will equal more runs on the scoreboard! 42 minutes. 2006.
