BlazeTrailer: WoodyHayes: I'm sure I would have noticed it more were I to watch baseball rather than listen to it in the background on the radio but how frequently does the "cleaning the base" move work at the big boy level?

As it turns out, success rate is better than when using the boredom masturbation routine.


In LITTLE LEAGUE I figured out that after the ump restarts after play is dead (and I could start taking a lead), I should wait until I saw the ball in the pitcher's hand/glove to leave the bag.

// or at least see 1B's hand/glove empty
// I feel like the "hey man, let me clean the bag?" move is dirty pool, though

The pitcher has to have the ball to step on the rubber. You'd still have plenty of time to take your primary lead.

Was the first base coach taking  a little nap?

What made this work so well was the webbing of the glove and hand of the baseman were empty - the ball was tucked into the BACK of his glove. It 100% looked like the 1B didn't have the ball.
