- A. Players start at home an simulate a swing, without a bat (for safety reasons).
- B. Players run at full speed down the outside edge of the baseline aiming at the right side of the bag.
- C. After crossing 1st base, player look to their right. The coach then holds up fingers on a hand and the players yell the number after they have crossed the base.
Home Plate The player at home plate is the starter. He will take an imaginary swing. He then proceeds to first base, taking a wide turn as if he hit it to the outfield. He runs as hard as he could and touches the inside of first base. He then goes back to the first base and gets in the line.
First Base: On the swing from the starter, he takes a secondary lead and goes from first to third, touching the inside of second base. He then goes back to second base and gets in line.
Second Base: On the swing from the starter, he takes his secondary lead and goes second to home, touching the inside of third base thereby cutting his turn as much as possible.
Third Base: After the swing, he goes back to the base to tag up from third base.
After each player has completed his turn at each base, the team gathers at home plate for an inside the park home run. Proper turns are stressed at each base.
