Baseball can break down into four key elements: hitting, defense, pitching and baserunning. You don’t need to be the fastest runner on your roster, however, in order to become a beast on the basepaths. Rather, you need to understand and implement the four basic rules of baserunning to your game.
WHAT ARE THE FOUR BASIC RULES?
The four basic rules to baserunning are as follows:
- Hustling to the bag with a “Hard 90s” mentality.
- Always look to advance bases.
- Work as hard backside as you do frontside.
- Never make the first or third out at third base.
Understanding these key principles can help you better your baserunning this season. Improving your skills on the basepaths can lead to both team and personal success. Get a leg up on your rivals this year by understanding the four basic rules to baserunning.
