[Music Playing] We are now talking about base running at the Youth League level. At this level, it is very important that each player understands that he is to start his running at the moment of contact. By that, we mean after he swings, his initial step, his front foot will be now facing towards the first base lane as he begins his sprint for the line. At the moment of contact, he is stepping towards the first base and as he begins to run. It is very important that each coach instructs his player to drop the bat. Once again, he needs to drop the bat before he continues to run to first. The incorrect way of releasing a bat as just shown is to throw the bat.
