How can I successfully steal second or third base?

Jump for Second

When stealing a base, you need a great jump for second, but not for third. To steal second, put your right foot a couple inches back so you turn and go in only one step. For third, get as much of a lead as you can and only watch the pitcher. You can`t be picked off unless he throws the ball, so don`t worry about the SS and 2B.

Must think about 6 and 4 and stay with the closest middle infielder.
