Coming up with new ideas for [tag]baseball fielding tips[/tag] can sometimes be a challenge. Here are a couple of [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] that Brian and Joe sent to me which work well with your youth teams.Baseball Fielding Tips

From Brian…
One of my favorite baseball drills is something we call “field, flip, and fly”.
I picked it up somewhere but I don’t remember where. Anyway the [tag]coach[/tag] hits a ground ball to the [tag]short stop[/tag] who makes a [tag]double play[/tag] flip to second base. The second baseman then, instead of throwing to first to complete the double play, throws the short stop a pop up.

He varies the [tag]pop up[/tag] from behind third base to short centerfield and so on.

I like it because it moves fast and works at least three different skills.

From Joe…
Sliding;
When first teaching a youth the proper mechanics of [tag]sliding[/tag] into a base – I start them by using a grass hill. It doesn’t have to be a big hill – just a grass incline of at least ten – twenty feet in length.

By using a grass hill – both gravity and momentum will work in their favor as they work on the proper fundamentals of the slide.
