Reading material – Tagging between the bases

Training drills – Tagging between bases

Apart from the ‘force play’ another method of putting a baserunner out is to ‘tag’ the runner. This technique involves a fielder ‘tagging’ the runner with the ball, whether it be in the bare hand or held securely in the glove, whilst the runner is between bases and therefore liable to be ‘put out’. It is important for developing players to learn the correct and safe technique for tagging runners between the bases and at the base.
