Here is one of the [tag]baseball outfield drills[/tag] I do with my outfielders to help them find ball off the bat quicker.

1) Outfielders with back to infield about 20 yards from coach.

2) Coach tosses a fly ball to either left or right of player.

3) Coach gives command of “Ball, Ball!”

4) The outfielder turns and finds the [tag]baseball[/tag] then sprints to make catch.

*Make sure the toss is high enough for player to make catch then you can decrease height of toss as players become familiar/better with drill. 5-10 reps for each outfielder.
