Third base on steal of home
by: Coach Dan

Thank you for your question. The "correct" answer to this question is dependent on how you situate your infield to cover the bases. If this is a straight steal of home, other than the third baseman letting the pitcher and catcher know that the runner at third is stealing, I want her to cover third. If the steal is on a pass ball/wild pitch, I want my pitcher covering home as she should be closer to the plate.

Hope this helps,
