Cardinal sins of base running

If you have watched MLB highlights over the past few days then you probably have seen this play from Yadier Molina.

The base runner who went to third on the walk broke three (yes, a MLB player committed THREE!!!!) cardinal sins on one single play.  Here they are:

  1. The runner rounded a base when a ball was in the infield.
  2. The runner turned his back and took his eyes off the ball.
  3. The runner got picked off third base.

If a player of mine did that at the high school level, he’d be in the doghouse for at least a week.
