Coach Jeff Ware discusses how to improve your footwork in picking off to first base in this video tip. Being quick to first base is not about how hard you can throw the ball over there, it has to do with how fast you can get your feet moving and how short your arm can be to the throwing position. A good way to practice this movement is at the end of a throwing program, where you turn your back to your partner and pretend that he is the first baseman.
