My name is Juan Carlos with Expert Village, and today we're going to be talking about softball for beginners. In this segment, we're going to talk about stealing second base. Like it's been mentioned before, in softball, the runner can not leave the base until the pitcher has let go of the ball. Normally, there's a timing when it comes to this. Normally when the pitcher is up here and about to release the ball, if you can get that extra step, you should. Running hard the first couple of steps, having a good jump is key to stealing a base. It's very, very important that one; you have a good jump, and two; you do not leave too early. You're automatically out by leaving early.
