Nike Baseball Tip: How to Become a Better Baserunner

Once you get on base, there are a few good tips to keep yourself in a scoring position. Taking a good lead is important. One big step with both the left foot and right foot followed by two shuffles while facing the pitcher will provide a standard lead.

Once you have your lead, knowing what types of moves the pitcher uses is crucial. Try to distinguish a pick move vs. a pitch move, “Pay attention to the pitcher’s lower half. His lower half movement will trigger his throw home or to the base. Also, keep one eye on the pitcher and one on the catcher. Catchers can tend to tip off picks and pitches” says Nike Baseball Camp Director.
