Fielding – Baserunning Metrics

Fastpitch Softball Free Article on Coaching - think before you make a trip to the pitchers mound

Want a way to encourage your infielders to do the little things better? Try this – let them know that an average time for runners from home to 1st is 3.0 seconds (18 yrs & older). That means they cover 20 feet in 1 second! And they cover 2 feet in 1/10th of a second! Get 1/10th of a second faster as an infielder (in fielding or throwing or the transition) and you turn close plays into Outs!
