Rundowns: More Than Just a Game of Pickle
Rundowns in baseball are one of the most exciting moments of the game. Although, rundowns are more than just a game of pickle. Why is it called a pickle? It essentially means you're stuck in a tough spot, like a cucumber stuck in vinegar brine for days.
They’re an opportunity to gain position and momentum in a game. Whether it's on 2nd base or going home, it's crucial for either player to make a play. The obstructed runner is awarded at least one base beyond the last base touched before obstruction. Which can ultimately decide the outcome of the game.
There are many ways to accomplish a rundown and stop one from happening to you. The rundown Ideally should require only two throws, so as to limit the possibility of an errant throw. In order to accomplish this, run hard at the base runner before you make the throw to your partner.
