The 10 Commandments of Effective Baserunning
FACT - Smart, aggressive baserunning can give your team a massive competitive advantage.
With the right strategy, it becomes an extremely useful tool for moving your players around the basepaths, getting more runners into scoring position, and dramatically increasing your chances of winning.
But without the proper philosophy and training, aggressive baserunning just forces your players into risky situations, and costly inning-ending put-outs.
Discover the Do's and Don'ts Of Effective Baserunning
Meet Scott Berry, head baseball coach at Mayville State University, NAIA Hall of Famer, and one of the winningest coaches in college baseball history. In 27 years, he's racked up an astonishing 20 conference championships, with an all-time record of 770-442.
One of the critical keys to Coach Berry's success over the years has been his approach to baserunning. He calls it "The Forgotten Offensive Weapon" because so many coaches neglect it, under-utilize it, or just plain ignore it.
With almost three decades of top-level experience, Coach Berry has baserunning strategy down to a science.
His philosophy is based on 10 simple "commandments" that ANY player can use... from the speediest lead-off hitter to the slowest-footed catcher.
COMMANDMENT #1 Effective baserunning starts from the bench. Know your opponent's tendencies and weaknesses.
COMMANDMENT #2 Be aggressive by taking advantage of your opponent's mistakes.
COMMANDMENT #3 Understand the word "reasonable." Players should take "reasonable" risks and make "reasonable" decisions by knowing their own speed and capabilities and the risk/reward of the situation.
COMMANDMENT #4 Don't run into outs or be doubled off on line drives. There's nothing that kills a rally, or switches the momentum of an inning faster than an easy out on the basepaths.
COMMANDMENT #5 Players should make their own decisions when running the bases. It's the coaches job to design the strategy and prepare their team - it's the players job to execute it.
COMMANDMENT #6 Think between pitches. Consider every situation you might encounter, and what your reaction should be.
COMMANDMENT #7 Practice hard, and execute the techniques that were taught by your coaching staff.
COMMANDMENT #8 Always hustle and "run smart."
COMMANDMENT #9 Know where the defense is positioned, the game score, the hitting count, the number of outs and the inning.
COMMANDMENT #10 Know where the baseball is at all times.
