Baseball Drill – Baserunning Relay

Running hard around the bases is important for the players to learn.  This online baseball drill will keep them on their toes and have them compete against their teammates to stay ahead.
What you need (set up):  Two lines – one at home plate, the other at second base.

How this drill works:  One the coaches’ signal for players to take off, the players on second sprint towards third, and then home, first, and back to second to tag their next teammate.  The runners from home do the same thing, only they round the bases in the correct order.

The teams will continue to do this, tagging the next baseball player in line when they reach their team bag, until one team overtakes the other rounding the bases.

Results:  Aside from getting into shape with this great conditioning drill, the players will understand the value of running the bases as fast as they can.  The competition aspect of it makes them try a little bit harder, too.
