The average pitcher waits three seconds in the set then throws the ball to home. Most good baserunners know this and will till the pitcher. So if you can hold the ball for 4 seconds or 2 seconds sometimes you have a change to upset the timing of the baserunner. Hold the ball make there nerves go crazy.
Also when you are on base wait three seconds then if you think he is going to go then just go. It’s worked for me!!!
