Players vs. Coaches in the Run Down

This morning, the infielders, coaches and some pitchers worked on run downs between bases. However, the coaches ran the bases, leading to all sorts of laughter and an interesting competition between them and the players…

… I’ve noticed a lot of this, compared to years past, in which drills are set up in a way that players are working on specific situations, and they’re all serious and focused, but each has an element of ‘fun,’ which the players, coaches and even fans who are watching are enjoying.
