Base Running Basics – Baseball

Base Running Basics – Baseball


Set four cones or t-shirts up in the pattern of bases on a baseball field (basically in a square). Designate the cones as home plate, first base, second base, and third base. The bases form a diamond or square, starting with home plate. Time your child running around the bases. Teach them how to run from home plate to first base and so on. This is a great skill and knowledge to have for school age children. Kickball is a popular school yard game!

What This Works On

Things You Need

Bases (t-shirts, cones)


Roll a ball to your child when they are standing on home plate. After kicking the ball, have them run the bases until you can tag them with the ball.
