Steal More Bases
#1 – Knowing what pitch is coming when stealing second base
This is one of my favorite base stealing tips because it gives you such an advantage when stealing second base. If you know what pitch is going to be thrown, and you can get a good jump, you can pretty much guarantee that you will be safe. Some people would say this is cheating, but believe it or not, this happens all the time. If you don’t like it, then you need to defend against it if you’re on defense. But I promise you it happens and you should take advantage of this base stealing tip if the opportunity presents itself. Watch the video to learn how to steal more bases!
#2 – Cutting down on your Jab Step when stealing second
Another one of my favorite base stealing tips for how to steal more bases is to cut down on your jab step when you lead off. What a lot of base stealers do when they start to steal a base is they take a jab step, some of them bigger than others. If you can cut down on this jab step, you will be faster when stealing second base. Watch this video to see how to do this.
#3 – Reading the Pitcher’s Looks for stealing 2nd and stealing 3rd
This is another great base stealing tip and this one works a lot of the time. I can’t tell you how many bases have been stolen off of the pitcher doing the same looks with runners on first and/or second. Pitchers are creatures of habit and if you pay attention to what they are doing, not only will you be able to pick up if they are tipping their pitches, but you will be able to steal more bases off of them. Forget if the catcher has a good arm or not. Steal the bases off of the pitcher! Watch the video to see what I mean.
