First to Third Base Running Drill

In the video clip below Coach Steve Nicollerat (Coach Baseball Right) shows you a drill that you can use to teach players how to go from first to third on a hit to right field

This simple drill will help players develop the proper habits needed. Players need to take a curved path towards the second base so they can hit the bag and make a straight line to the third base.

Coach Nicollerat begins by placing a cone some distance from the first base bag. This cone marks the spot were the player would take his lead. He then places cones in a curved path towards second base.

When the coach says go, the players must follow the cones and run from first to third.

Coach Nicollerat has a multitude of resources available to players and coaches at his site Coach Baseball Right including other FREE Base Running Drills
