This may be the main problem right here - it may be an anticipation/reading the pitch issue. She needs to move before the final pitch result. As a SS you are watching the pitch and then moving to watch the batter if it looks like a hittable pitch. The moment you can see there is going to be no swing because it is a clear ball or they are not swinging - or you see a swing and miss, you start moving towards second EVERY TIME. If you are not starting to move before the ball hits the catchers glove, you may not get there on time.My SS is really struggling to get to 2nd on a steal. She isn't slow by any means but watching the pitch result and then breaking for 2nd is very difficult she is often a step or two late. Should I be cheating her towards 2nd more? Maybe I have her too far off the base?
