When we ask her about it she says I don't know. We had this issue pop up again this weekend. I think it's not just sliding at home but it going home in general. It only happens when it's a pass ball. She freezes half way down the line and runs back to 3rd. so I think not only is she scared to slide it also going home on a passed ball. I personally think she doesn't want to get out because she feels its going to let her team down. I keep telling her it's the other way around.What exactly is scary about the catcher?
Why (to her) is this different from stealing 2nd or 3rd base? She slides and perhaps her cleats hit the catcher. Big whoop.
