Lead and Dive Back

Set Up:  

Each player will take turns on the base, starting with their left foot on the back corner of the bag, while starting in a sprinters stance facing the next bag. (Wearing batter’s helmet.) 


On the whistle/command players will take 3 large steps towards the next bag, stop immediately and look in towards home plate. On the second whistle/command players will turn their body back towards the base, crouch down and dive back towards the bag, touching the back left corner of the bag with their right hand and turning their head to the left (facing away from home plate).  

Key Focus Points:  

Ensure players reach the corner of the bag away from home plate and that they turn their head away from the throw.
