White Cap – Base running


The coach is standing down the 1st base line. The player takes  position in the batter’s box. With a ball standing on a tee, the player takes a full swing and starts running towards 1st base, then 2nd, then 3rd and back home. To be successful, the player must touch each bag and yell the name of the bag he is touching. (distance of 60 feet)
