  • 5. 
    You are batting with a teammate already on 1st base, and you drill a base hit down the line pass the third baseman.  Your teammate got a great jump on the pitch, and is going to easily advance to 3B.  Your first base coach tells you to keep running to 2B, so you follow instructions and go full speed toward 2B.  While running to second, you see that the left fielder has chosen to fire the ball towards 2B in attempt to get you out.  The throw looks strong and on line, and will more than likely beat you to the bag.  Your action should be to:
    • A. 

      Run as hard as you can, and slide head first to the outside of the bag to avoid the tag.

      Immediately stop and begin to retreat back towards 1B, hoping to draw a throw or get into a rundown.

      Stop drop and roll!

    • A. 

      Fieldl the ball and make a strong fake throw to first base, and then immediately check the runner at third, in hopes of catching them off the bag, or attempting to run home.

    • B. 

      Scoop up the ball and make a quick underhanded throw to first base to attempt to get the runner out.

      Just field the ball and eat it. In other words, live to fight another day.

    • A. 

      All runners should immediately get back to their base to tag up when the fly ball is caught.

    • B. 

      Runners on 3B, and 2B should immediately tag up, but runner on 1B should go half way to second and wait to see if ball is caught or dropped.

    • B. 

      Swing at the pitch if it is a strike. Take pitch if it is a ball.

As the runner at 2B, you should:
    • A. 

      Go halfway between 2B and 3B, and wait and see what happens to your teammate caught between home and third, before choosing whether to advance to 3B or go back to 2B.

    • B. 

      Immediately retreat back to 2B, and stay there, hoping that your teammate can work her way out of the pickle she's in and either score or get back to 3B.
