Should you ever slide into first base?
Asked in Softball
In softball how do you do a hook slide?
In a hook slide you want to slide next to the base rather then straight into the base. If the fielder is on the right side on the base, then you want to slide to the left and vice versa. So you start out sliding next to the base and you roll from your back to your stomach in mid slide and grab onto the base with what ever hand is easier for you...hooking yourself onto the base. This is usually used to avoid being out in a tag situation.
