I got these baseball drills from two of my readers. They include some fresh ideas for a baseball coach to use. Try them out and let me know what you think!
A throwing drill that I like to do is for conditioning and helps with mechanics and arm strength we play long toss with footballs. If you throw it right it helps strengthen the arm as well as working on your mechanics. We do this in the gym during our pre season. We have two groups QB’s and WR’s .The WR we use like [tag]outfielders[/tag] going back on fly balls.
It brings some fun to the practice as well as getting a work out.
Well we use several drills and I am sure some of which a lot of other coaches use. Here’s something we do for hitting mechanics.
I was having a problem with them dipping with their swing or upper cutting. So what we do before we hit off Tees is I have my batter slide the bat behind their back holding the bat to where it only allows a small bit of the sweet spot sticking out.
I have them practice with twisting and making contact with the ball on the Tee. It not only has helped with the swing but it has also taught them the proper way to use their hip and drive through the ball and finish a swing.
