Take a look at this submission from Tony.  A great example of [tag]baseball drills for youth[/tag] that you can use for an indoor setting which are always welcome!Baseball Drills for Youth

From Tony…
The players really like this [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] for [tag]indoor[/tag] [tag]practice[/tag].

I call it TEAM DEFENSE!!!!!

Split Players into two equal teams.
One team will be hitting off a tee, or soft toss, from about 40-50 feet away.
The other team will be playing [tag]defense[/tag], spread out against the far wall.
The players can spread out any way that they think their team will be successful.  All players must be behind the foul line, for safety.

All players on hitting team get one swing.  If the defense allows the ball to hit the wall behind them, they have to do some sort of exercise– plyometrics, pushups, crunches, etc.  After all [tag]hitters[/tag] have hit, the defense sprints to the side and does the set amount of exercises.

The teams then switch roles. If the defense stops all of the hitters from hitting the wall, then the [tag]hitting[/tag] team, must do the exercise.

The kids really play hard together, and push each other.  We try and get a quick game in every day or so, to keep their excitement.

For safety, we use Incrediballs.  They still fly pretty fast. Great line drive drill for hitters.  They must hit the wall under the 8ft. line on the wall.
