This drill will prepare any player for a game situation when a pop up is hit and the player is on base.
Runners begin on third and break from the base and take approximately 4-5 steps, running in foul territory.
At the coaches command, the runner tags at third waiting for the coach to give the next command (simulating a fly ball).
At the coaches command, the runner breaks for home with a slide-by past home plate.
The catcher may want to work on blocking home plate at this time.
Another fun addition is to actually have a coach hit fly balls to the outfield and try to beat the runner home with a throw.
