Coach John Cumberland describes the proper way to cover first base as a pitcher when the ball is hit to the right side of the infield. Coach cumberland likes to take a direct path to the bag and as he gets close, put his glove up giving the fielder a target and letting him know you are ready for the ball. It is important to get in good habits of turning around after making the out to check for other runners who might try to advance.
