Baserunning – When to Run & When to Hold

Fastpitch Softball baserunning tips when to run and when to hold

Knowing when to run and when to hold up is an important skill when running bases. To help your players better know when to run to the next base, either on their lead-offs or on extra base hits, try these simple but very effective tips:

  • When to Lead Off – have your runners leave the base when the heel of the pitcher’s pivot foot leaves the ground.

  • When to Run on Balls Hit to Outfield – if the outfielder turns her back and runs then the baserunner runs (without tagging up)!
