BVSA Teaches: Judging the distance of your turn
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about judging the distance of your turn. Hey guys, I have another point on the base hit to the outfield and rounding the bases aggressively. The distance you run and how far you round the base depends on where the ball is hit. For example, if the ball is hit to right field and I know it’s a base hit. I’m going to make a good hard turn with my right foot inside of the bag. But if the ball is hit to the right fielder, I break down a little shorter. Opposed to if it was a base hit down the left field line or to the left-center field gap.
The farther away the ball is hit, the more aggressive and far you get with your turn before you break it down. If the fielder bobbles the ball, you can take advantage and easily get to second base. However, if the ball is hit to right-center or right field, you need more of a bobble or kick to take that extra base. It’s important to teach players these techniques.
