Third Base Coach Positioning

At the younger levels you don’t see coaches venture too far from the designated coaching boxes on both sides of the field.  The purpose of the boxes is to prevent coaches from getting too close to the field and interfere with the game.  Getting too close to the line before the pitch can allow a coach a better view of the catcher’s signs and might be able to relay the pitch to the batter.  That’s why coaches should stay in the box before the pitch.  After the pitch, however, is a different story.  At least it is for the third base coach.  

Today’s video tip is for third base coaches.  It shows the typical movement seen in most third base coaches at the Major League level and the reasons for that movement.  It is a good idea for third base coaches at any level to incorporate similar movements to help their runners more effectively.
