Tag Around the Bag

Set Up:  

The first player in line should stand at the 3rd base position looking in towards home plate with glove.   

Coaches should stand in front and throw a ball to the player towards the field side of the bag.  


Players should pivot to the bag, keeping their body in front, catch the ball and then bring the tag down and around the field side of the bag.  

Key Focus Points:  

Base runners are taught to slide to the opposite side of the bag from the defender.  This drill ensures the tag is low and makes it all the way around the bag.
