How to steal home in L.L. baseball guaranteed to work.


when we talk about stealing home in
Little League most the time is up the passed ball at the wild pitch another
option is still home is gonna throw back to the pitcher but this really works
there is another way to stay home and when it’s done correctly and under the
correct circumstances it works every time it’s tried in order to understand
how to make this work as a runner you need to first understand the rules that
govern when you can and cannot steal 12 advanced basis the pitcher to pitch must
have reached home plate to you are allowed to advance basis from that point
until two things occur number one the pitcher has the ball and
is in contact with the pitching rubber and to the catcher is in the box facing
the direction the pitcher if time is called the ball is made to become dead
you may not advance and tell the umpire puts the ball back into play which he
shouldn’t do until the pitcher and the rubber and ready to pitch so as in a
foul ball obviously you can’t deal at that point and tell the boss put back in
the play this brings up our opportunity to steal often in little league even at
the all-star level a pitcher will receive the throw from the catcher and
then turn away from the third base runner not looking at the lead runner in
this situation you are able to steal home but there is a right way to make
that happen as a future baserunner always observe the catcher or pitcher
habits while in the dugout or while on deck fossel the better you observe the
fielders the better chance you have to exploit any weaknesses when you are on
third base timing is critical for example when you’re only down by one run
and it’s where the end of the game and the strength of your lineup is coming up
too bad this is not a good time to make this move because you’re most likely
gonna get hit in any way you might as well say that move for a later time in
the game but if you’re around the base there’s two outs you’re down by one run
as the bottom of the sixth and you have a poor hitter up that’s the time to make this move how
to do it correctly take your secondary lead and every pitch in a non aggressive
fashion you have to first get the first couple pitches to load the country in
the picture into complacency if you move in an aggressive they will be watching
you really closely the larger of a non-aggressive leading can maintain the
better of course when ready wait until the picture has the ball and
makes his turn away don’t rush it he has to turn away before you can move but the
moment the moment he turns you go hard it you go fast by the time someone alerts him he turns
to realize what’s happening and makes the 30 most likely a wild and rushed
throw you’re already gonna be safe and for those of you who say this only works
when you have a lazy pitcher and it doesn’t happen after little league it’s
a cheap move my responses it does happen in Upper lead levels you can see the end
of this video for an example in a major league baseball game where a guy on
second stole third using the same exact method the second and second as a good
coach you’re always teaching our kids to observe the game and looking for
strategic advantages this is what baseball is about its a thinking man’s
game as much as it is physical huge part of the game is to study and learn your
opponents so that you can adjust your game accordingly this happens to be just
one of them also by making this move you teach the opposing pitcher lesson as
well as opposing coach so that they can learn and not make the same mistake
later on now don’t come back here and tell me that this didn’t work as the
only way it doesn’t work is if you do it wrong even a slower runners can make
this work but time in and not hesitating of course important so good luck

  1. It also works well if you have a runner on second and that runner does something to grab the pitchers attention for a split second as he turns around.

  2. I had done this after a passed ball in my League against the best team, the story goes like this. The score is 3-4 and there is a wild pitch my teammate scores tying the game and the catcher gets it and throws it back to the pitcher. The pitcher then rushes to the mound without looking at me knowing that in LL the pitcher reaching the mound means no runners can go, that's if the runner is on the base or not stealing, so I take advantage of his knowledge and steal home, he thinks it is illegal but the umpire calls me safe and the game is over. #Walkoffhomesteal

  3. I prefer waiting until they are older and taking advantage of a frustrated pitcher switching to a full windup with bases loaded.  use a stopwatch and time all your players from a leadoff to the plate.  then time the pitchers windup, if its longer than what it takes your runner to score send them.  If the pitcher stops mid windup its a balk and if they pitch your runner should be safe easy.

  4. before I even saw this I did it at the big league level. If you play on a 90ft diamond do not try this

  5. I used to do this move all the time in travel ball and little league. You can do it by aggressively taking off to home and stopping. The pitcher will get nervous and shaken up from you threatening to steal home. After he walks a batter or throws a few balls he typically gets discouraged… he will start to look at the ground. The way you do it aggressively is when you turn to return to 3rd base for the x# time the pitcher will look away to the rubber. instead of hurrying back to 3rd do a smooth 360 and then continue to home plate. Its almost a war of attrition. I used to steal home a dozen times or so a season.

    The reason the aggressive approach works at this level is because pitchers at that age are used to players overshooting the lead after the pitch and getting thrown out (but never having the kahones to actually steal home). Many times the pitcher will overthrow the 3rd baseman and you can pretty much walk to home after that. If you act like you respect his ability to throw you out at 3rd then he will become complacent that you aren't going to execute the run to home or take such a big lead.

  6. This did work for me. I was on third with one of our worst hitters up, and as soon as the pitcher turned away I started running and he rushed the throw and scored easily

  7. Another thing to know, my dad told me and he played until college, if the catcher is throwing lobs or "rainbows" back to the pitcher that is a great time to steal, right when he throws the ball. The ball will travel slowly to the pitcher and that will give you a chance to steal to 2nd or 3rd base.

  8. As others have mentioned, the author should have included a clip to show this strategy being successfully executed.

  9. This type of stuff happens rarely in high levels of play. You can probably count on one hand how many times runners advance on the throw back to the pitcher. And that's saying something considering 30 MLB teams play a 162-game schedule. This tactic only works on inattentive fielders. It becomes more effective if the catcher throws the ball back to the pitcher with a high arc instead of throwing it back with some authority. When the bases are 90-ft apart, this tactic goes out the window.

  10. I used to teach this in LL. I felt guilty post coaching since it's not really teaching them how the game is played in the big leagues. However, when you think about it, pitchers are always trying to pick of runners "sleeping". Catchers are trying to back pick. So why shouldn't base runners take advantage of pitcher/catcher sleepy moments?

  11. If it happens and works in little league so often why did you not show it. Just showed taken pitches

  12. I'm an excellent baserunner, and during my travel season I stole home about 10-15 times by going right when the catcher releases the ball, second and third are easy

  13. This is totally wrong you are supposed to go when the catcher pumps his arm back and is about to throw it back to the pitcher

  14. I'm in little league baseball and I did not know about this I am a very fast runner so I love to steal thanks because this video will help me steal third or possibly home

  15. wait, again. you neither give an example of this on the L.L. level nor any upper level. isn't your video about stealing home? the video of the pro shows the runner is taking advantage of the catcher – pitcher exchange. the runner took advantage of the catcher's throw and not the negligence of the pitcher. this is no where near the EXACT method. in L.L. it works mainly because of the 60ft base path.

  16. what I do is i take an aggressive lead at third halfway down, and when the catcher throws to either 3rd base or the pitcher I take off

  17. I stole 3rd when pitcher turned his back and there was an over throw at 3rd and I was the tying run and our worst hitter was up lol I watch the vid after I already did it lol

  18. Yah I’m a slower runner and I’ve used this strategy at least 5 times probably more I did it once to win a game it rly works

  19. I've stole home twice this year in my travel ball league by just baiting the catcher into just throwing it to the 3rd basemen the I just go on a dead sprint to home and works.

  20. My coach told me to do this on the throw back to the pitcher and i was safe the opposing team was shocked that you can actually do that.
