Baseball Myth—When running around the bases, touch the base with your right foot to avoid tripping. Not true! No reason to studder-step & lose valuable time. The step you lose can prove very costly!

Coach Henze’s Related Thought

Like Coach Larry said, use any foot to touch the base, but be sure to touch the inside corner of each base. Use the corner of the bag to push off and go directly to the next base.
