the pitch and is in position to
land properly at the right time.
When a runner takes a secondary lead, they must land with their right foot as the ball crosses the hitting zone.

A note to catchers and infielders: You should be looking for runners who either land with the incorrect foot or have poor timing of their right foot landing. They become prime targets. If you see this at any bag, relay a sign to the proper teammate and put on a pick-off following the pitch.
