One of my subscribers actually suggested this idea for youth baseball fun drills. I’ve included it for you below. Give it a try!
One of our kids favorite baseball drills is a slide drill.
Our baseball field is not in the best shape (rocks and pebbles) so we obtained two large cardboard boxes and placed them between 1st and 2nd base butting up to 2nd base. When the kids hit the cardboard they go into their slide position and glide right to the bag. If they don’t slide correctly they won’t made it to the bag as they will loose their momentum.
It also allows them to hit the bag and pop-up ready to go to third on a bad throw from the catcher or outfielder.
If you want to have your kids practice sliding without getting cuts and scraps and holes in their practice pants this baseball drill works well and the kids love it!
