Where is the roar of the crowd? It`s hard to be ahead of the game when lack of support impedes any further movement. When you don`t have the home field advantage, one little negative reaction can send you flying back to first base. The good news is that you have lots of time to plan while waiting for everyone to catch up. Your advantage isn`t lost, just delayed. When you finally round home plate, make sure you give credit to everyone who helped you get there.
