VIDEO: The Great Debate – Run through or slide into first base?

Everybody has their own opinion on how you go about doing this. You learn about it in little league and it’s something that seems to stick with you throughout your playing days.

ESPN‘s John Brenkus, the host of the popular ‘Sport Science’ episodes that appear on the network, did a segment on the often debated topic in baseball of whether you should run through first base versus sliding into the bag.

It’s a very interesting feature, especially how he’s able to use his technology to really breakdown each attempt and see which choice is the best when in that situation on the diamond. The results were closer than one would initially have thought.

Yet again, a very cool breakdown by Brenkus and the ‘Sports Science’ crew at ESPN.
