Importance of Good Baserunning

Veteran coaches know that baserunning is extremely important to the success of their team.  This is clearly overlooked at the recreational league level as you will see new coaches work hard on hitting and fielding but spend little time teaching good baserunning skills.  Don’t be that coach or dad.

While having a team that can hit for average and power is great but trust me that will not always be the case.  If you have a team with quality pitching and good defense, you will find that great baserunning can help make up for less than terrific hitting.  You team can win games with only a few key hits if your players know how to effectively run the bases.

Our baserunning series will teach new coaches how to run the bases correctly and hopefully provide more seasoned coaches with something they have not thought about.

Our baserunning series will start tomorrow and run through the next couple of weeks.  Remember, if you have any questions along the way please email us and we will do our best to help you out.
