Fastpitch Drill: Things We Need To Know On Offense
Things we need to know on offense:
1. Be sure players are familiar with signals from first base coach when running from home to first, or home to second.
2. Avoid being tagged out when running from first base to second, particularly with less than two outs. Let fielder throw ball under all circumstances.
3. Tag-ups from first and third base should be assisted by the coach. (Coaching preference.) At second base, runner is on her own.
4. Practice covering the bases and running out your bunts. We sometimes find ourselves practicing the bunts only, without the running.
5. Don't get baited by a fake throw.
