Lead and Step 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. Players will then take three large steps back to the bag and stepping on the back left corner with their left and twist their body to left returning to the starting sprinter’s position.  

Key Focus Points:  

Establishing the same distance away from the bag each time helps with the return steps.
