Base running is where we originally started with being different than the other guys. We found that applying base running can be a great equalizer to a stronger opponent.
The Delay Steal is one of those tools that we applied but applied differently.
Traditional Delayed Steal
Shuffle Shuffle Go
Our Delayed Steal
Wait for ball to be throw then Go.
Our method creates more chaos with the opponent and can be run against anyone on the field, especially outfielders. As the player throws the ball the receiver has to wait as everyone is yelling at him. The other players are in a full sprint to the bag.
Result: The players running never get to the bag. The receiver rushes his throw and launches it in the outfield.
