Coaching baseball-baserunning

In my last post I wrote about a AAA player being doubled off on a hit and run when a fly ball was caught in the right field corner. Last night I saw this happen again and in a MAJOR LEAGUE GAME. This should NEVER HAPPEN, so when coaching baseball use the situation scrimmage not only to tell the runners in this situation to turn their head to the hitter as the pitch approaches the plate, but to also practice the runners reaction to the ball in a live, game like, situation.
