Marshall got started right from the beginning as the Herd
jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning. Sophomore Elicia D’Orazio (Clermont, Fla.) got the offense rolling with a single down the left field line. She then
stole second
before senior Kaelynn Greene (Eastvale, Calif.) was walked. Greene then
stole second
after the walk and as the defense threw to second D’Orazio
stole home
and put the first run on the board. Greene later crossed the plate on a wild pitch after
stealing third.

-lean, break it down, look over right shoulder, get to edge of grass, turn to your left, walk back slowly looking for open bag.
1B coach pick up 3B coach for signs.
- drop bat, first step with back leg
Look for false steps

Check positioning of first basemen

Remove secondary lead

1-1.5 body lengths + depending on 1B

Out quick / back quick

Keep your feet moving
Great position as a middle pre-pitch:
athletic, thumbs up, chest forward, rear up & out, very athletic with the ability to move.

Get out further if have time to be in this position! We don't want chest square to the plate.
Types of Steals
- straight steal any base
- delay anytime
- slip
- after a walk, hit
- pitching change or conference
- after squeeze with throw H
- 1st & 3rds: good delay, bad delay, off the pitcher

SS -positioning? footspeed? first step?
Catcher - drops to knees? too many steps? lobs ball? mask? over aggressive?
P - checks runners? which way turns? arm strength? can throw overhand?
2B covering- athleticism? positioning?
Open bags after impact play, bad call, any emotion
listen to the D they tell you what to run
Teach your athletes what to look for & to check D.

Have them coach bases in practice.

Give them freedom - they are just outs.
Communicate prior, reinforce during.
Coach to Coach communication early.

Delayed signals to runners without indicator

Understanding of hand signals - be consistent. Move & quit watching lead runner!

Leads at 2B
- check OF, always think score
- angle, straight or around SS
- take lead when arm top of circle
- get big, throw behind take 3B

Leads at 3B
- aggressive either foot on bag
-L foot on bag expecting ball to the green
- walking lead; delayed lead
- never get picked rally killer
Take lead when P heel down
"A coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime." Billy Graham
But really think of how great the imprint is that our athletes leave on us and our programs.
1st & 3rds
- what is the objective?
- understand execution
- understand types of plays
- take what the D gives you
- commands
- run something!
runner @ 3B
stay close, break on throw, bait the throw, bait the cut, read it be aggressive, you're good
runner @ 1B
good delay, bad delay, straight steal

1. Pitcher's release time
2. Catcher's Pop Time
3. Your runner's time on steal
P + C > runner's time = Run!
