I got the inspiration for this [tag]coaching[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] from Ty, one of my readers. It includes a fresh idea on [tag]baseball throwing drills[/tag]. Try it out and let me know what you think!
Maybe you’ve already seen this–[tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]throwing[/tag] accuracy drill
Line all the kids up on the [tag]pitching[/tag] mound.
Put a tee with a ball on it on home plate.
Give the kids 3 or 4 chances (depending on amount of kids) to hit the ball off the tee with another ball. Even if they hit the ball holder on the tee or the tee stand, it shows accuracy and should be rewarded. Kids standing in line should watch and pay attention.
Kids that don’t pay attention will lose one of there chances to hit the ball. Give a prize next practice @ water break for those kids that hit the ball off the tee–like a Gatorade or a new baseball or anything you desire. A note pad is handy for keeping track of those kids who lose turns and who hit the ball off the tee. Younger player move up closer to home plate if needed.
Kids love to win things.
