We do [tag]baseball practice games[/tag] to end practice.  We call our [tag]baseball game[/tag] “knock-out”. Make baseball practice fun for them, but you still focus on fundamentals.

Put all players at infield positions, and put a [tag]baseball[/tag] coach to play first base.

Hit ground balls to each spot. The players need to field the ground ball cleanly and make an accurate throw to first. If they make an error they are eliminated from the round and become runners.

Once you have runners, the players need to field the ground ball and throw the player out at first. Last player remaining in the infield wins.

This is a good [tag]baseball drill[/tag] to get the boys to have good fundamentals and speed like a game situation.

We end each practice with this drill. The players look forward to the extra ground balls and competition.
