"Fake Steal" - It's The REAL DEAL!!!|
||"Fake Steals" are one of the most valuable
offensive strategies that a team can use in today's game. The proper use of Fake Steals allows your team to steal on the Firstbaseman,
rather than on the pitcher or the catcher.|

Trickplay - Take your 1st base lead in rightfield! - No Kidding!|
||In 1999 I started using a "safe and but
tricky" way to get even my slowest runner to secondbase. The play is ran with bases loaded or runners at 1st and 3rd. It involves
the firstbase runner taking an "Outfield lead at 1st". The play is extremely effective even in the high school and college
ranks. Do not confuse it with other "cat and mouse" plays. AND YES IT IS LEGAL!|

Hit2win Baseball - A Skill Building "Drill and Game" For All Ages|
||Hit2win Baseball, is a simple hitting
game that is played with three players on a team. The game involves hitting and defensive skill buidling. The players hit
"poly wiffle balls" with their metal bats. It is a great indoor and "change of pace" activity that makes every practice end
on a "high note".|

Defensive Coaching Tip - Buy Your "Good Glove and Softer Hands"Trainer At The Toy Store...
buy a very inexpensive yet very useful defensive trainer at most toy stores and mass merchants. Go to the store's toy section.
Look for those "catch-it" toys that consist of two "dish shaped catchers" with hand-straps. They have vecro on the concave
side and are used to catch a tennis ball. This game sells for under $10 and it makes two great trainers. Have your infielders
take "soft" ground balls wearing this device. It will help them develop "softer hands" and will really improve their glove
skills. It teaches them not to reach and to always use two hands. It also teaches them very rapidly to move their feet and
"front the ball".
