players up at all three bases. They are independent of each
other because each base has different rules for a ball in
the dirt. A coach pitches from the mound and mixes in good
and bad pitches to the catcher.
time a ball is about to bounce the whole team yells "Dirt".
This helps you make sure everyone is paying attention. Base
runners on first should automatically go when the ball is
in the dirt. Runners on second should react to the ball
in the dirt by getting a good lead and deciding if they
can make it safely to third. If the ball gets away from
the catcher they should go, if the catcher digs the ball
out of the dirt, they should return to second. Runners at
third should follow the same principles as the runner at
second, get a good lead, and then react to whether the catcher
digs the ball out of the dirt or not.
