Through First Base

Setup- You will need home plate and first base setup.  

Movement- The hitter will start at the plate and take a dry swing. Once they swing, the hitter will run as hard as they can through first base. 

Key Focus Points- Make sure to emphasize that the athletes run hard all the way through the base. Once they get to the base, they should hit the front of the base with their foot. After they get through the base, their head should immediately be turned toward the right in case the ball is thrown away down the line.
