This drill can be fun for players to learn to always watch the first base coach, react to the signals, and execute with proper footwork.
Runners will be lined up at home plate
The runners will take a swing and proceed to run to first.
Within the first 4 to 5 steps the runner should look at the first base coach and depending on the signals the coach has designated the runner will either take the turn, or run through the base.
When runners become more advanced add the third base coach.
When runners are signaled to take the turn at first the third base coach will give another signal.
At the end of each sequence the runners will proceed to the back of the line at home plate and continue.
