Around the infield with baserunner
by Rick A
Rick A. submitted:Player at every infield position including catcher.
Base runner at 1st base. Coach hits a ground ball to SS, runner goes on contact all the way home.
SS throws to 1B who holds the bag for the out, comes off bag and throws to 3B, who puts down tag while avoiding runner who may be there by then, and throws to 2b who puts down tag, pivots and throws home where catcher and runner have play at home.
Runner must slide at home, catcher can't block plate. Point goes to offense if safe. Defense if out.
Next runner up. 1st team to 5 wins, then switch fielders and runners. Teaches proper base running (hitting inside corners ) and on defense getting rid of ball quickly and making good throws.
