Baserunning – Leadoffs

baserunning leadoffs lead off player rocker sprinter start stride foot forward pitcher motion adjust jump jumps

Want an easy way to teach your baserunners when to start their leadoff? Any player that uses the rocker or sprinter start (if these terms are not familiar to you, check out our Baserunning eSkills) needs to start her leadoff as the pitcher starts her stride. For those players using the foot forward or the baseball leadoff, they need to start their leadoff when the pitchers hand gets to the top of her motion. Adjust it for each player slightly if needed, but this simple tip should make it much easier for your runners to get those good jumps!
