Special thanks to Dan for sending this one in. If you’ve every searched for fresh ideas for [tag]baseball drills and conditioning[/tag], you MUST try this out!
The [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] I would like to share may be known but if it is done properly and quickly it is a nice [tag]warm up[/tag] to show off before a game. We also do this drill daily as a warm up and conditioner.
Our current starting drill starts with the entire team huddled up, we do our standard 1-2-3 go team and disperse evenly to the bases. (Even the outfielders)
Starting with the [tag]catcher[/tag] start around the horn with the person throwing to first then jogging/sprinting to the base thrown to. The [tag]receiver[/tag] performs a proper glove side rotation lining up with the next base.
Continue for 4-6 rounds then reverse. Throws now will be more conventional. Of course if you are left handed, the first set will be more natural and the second half you will spin to align your [tag]throw[/tag].
Points to stress are: throw to the base. Give a good target. Not every throw will be online, be able to make a decision, if it is actually better to “turn glove side” or throw with your momentum to the base.
