Video: The Pinto Bean Hitting Drill

The above video discusses a baseball hitting drill called the Pinto Bean Drill.

During this baseball hitting drill, from about fifteen feet or less, you’ll toss pinto beans to your batter. Your hitter’s going to attempt to hit this little object.

What we’re doing is hoping that the eyesight will be able to pick up a tiny thing—a pinto bean—and hit it. If your hitter can hit a pinto bean, then the baseball’s going to look like a watermelon, and your hitter should have more success in hitting it.

It’s important for you, the coach, to have sunglasses on or to be looking down so that you won’t be hit in the eye by this tiny object.

Do you think your hitters will get a lot out of this baseball hitting drill? If so, be sure to share this video with your fellow coaches and players!
