The Rules of Baseball : How to Tag Up in Baseball


The last thing we are going to talk about
on the bases is tagging up. Tagging up means you have a person on base whether it be first
base, second base or third base. A ball is popped up in the air and before a fielder
can catch it you will have had a lead on the pitch. So the pitch is made, you step off
the base you can see it’s popped up. When it’s popped up with less than two outs you
run back to the base, you wait until the fielder’s, say it’s in deep right center field or deep
right field, the player makes the catch. As soon as the ball hits his glove you could
break for third base and it’s called tagging up. It’s most effective with players on
third base, if a fly ball deep to the outfield player catches it with less than two outs,
runner on third then scores as a result.
