Gilmore takes you through a base-by-base breakdown of everything necessary to be productive on the bases. He starts in the batter’s box, concentrating on how to find the ball coming out of the box. This gives your runners an advantage to maximize speed and puts pressure on the infield to make the play. He includes two drills to help your team stretch singles to doubles.

Once on base, Coastal Carolina strives for an 85% success rate on steals. Gilmore passes along the important reads to look for to get a great jump versus right- or left-handed pitchers. He also shows you the keys to safe, yet effective primary and secondary leads. Gilmore touches on fake steals and how to disrupt the pitcher and catcher’s rhythm, which will not only lead to more successful steals, but better pitches to hit.

Gilmore also demonstrates the nuances on reads and leads when your runner reaches second. See how these techniques can open up the left side of the infield for your batters, force the pitcher to change his pitching strategy and make stealing third easier. He also covers tagging on fly balls to get in scoring position, fake steals and advancing on ground balls in detail.

Learn to score from third on ground balls, the suicide squeeze, tagging and stealing home.

With these techniques and philosophies, you will be able to put pressure on opposing teams and place your runners in situations to score at any time!
