Coming up with new ideas for [tag]baseball drills for quick hands[/tag] can be a challenge.  Here’s a drill that has worked well for me in the past.

The “Dueling Fungos” [tag]baseball drill[/tag].Baseball Drills for Quick Hands

Divide players into two teams.  Place cones on the infield grass just in front of where the second baseman and shortstop play.  Two [tag]baseball coach[/tag]es take turns hitting ground balls and checking fundamentals, one hitting from the third base side of homeplate to the players at the second base station and one from the first base side of homeplate to the kids at the shortsop station (a single coach could be used hitting balls alternately to each team).  As coaches hit ground balls to each player, they must field with proper technique, meaning they must get into the ready position, field correctly, shuffle their feet, make a good aggressive throw and then return to the end of their line.

The throws are made into a target net behind home plate.  If proper fielding technique is accomplished and the [tag]baseball[/tag] ends up hitting the target or within reason of it, that players team earns a point – first team to a pre-determined number of points is the winner.
