One of the [tag]baseball throwing drills[/tag] I use with my team is called the overthrow drill.  The idea of this [tag]baseball drill[/tag] is to work on players positioning themselves in case of a bad throw or overthrow.

All players take their position on the field. One player in the infield is given the ball and they choose where they want to throw the ball. The throw must be out of reach of the intended player on purpose making the other position player who should be backing up to get the ball. Then they overthrow the [tag]baseball[/tag] to another position allowing another backup to take place.

This goes on until the [tag]baseball coach[/tag] stops the drill. This works well with pitchers in determining where they need to be at all times.  Everyone on the field stays alert because they never know when they will be called on to backup a throw.
