Former Big League Manager Jim Riggleman discusses the mistakes that he sees all too often with runners on first and a fly ball hit to the outfield in this segment. Coach Riggleman teaches his players to be aggressive (while still be smart) on the base paths, looking to take the extra base when the situation presents itself. It doesn't take blazing speed to be a good base runner, knowing when and where to take the chances is what will give you the added edge.
