Home to First – Base Running Drill

Fastpitch Drills

This drill is a great simulation of game situations and making quick decisions.

Batters can hit off a tee, bunt or swing the bat and then run to first.

Once the player makes contact with the front edge of the base and look immediately to their right.

The first base coach holds a ball in their right hand. If the coach drops the ball, the runner takes off for second (indicating an overthrow). If coach keeps the ball, the runner turns to their right and returns to first base.

After completing a perfect run to first, the runners stay behind the first base coach waiting for the rest of the team to finish and for the next base running series.
