Coming up with new ideas for [tag]baseball tips and drills[/tag] can sometimes be a challenge. Here’s a tip that has worked well for me in the past.
The [tag]baseball drill[/tag] that my team enjoys the most is a [tag]baseball infield drill[/tag] where the infielders are at their position and the outfielders hit ground balls to them. Here is how it works.
There are 4 hitting stations with a hitter and a ball receiver. One pair is halfway dawn the 1st base line and hitting grounders to the shortstop, another pair is just to the right of home plate slightly up the first base line hitting grounders to the third baseman, the next pair is on the left side of home plate and hit grounders to 1st Base, while the fourth pair are halfway up the third base line hitting grounders to the second baseman. The infielders throw to the receiver of the person that hit them the ground ball. The hitter and receiver change position after about ten grounders and after 20, I have the pairs rotate. This continues until all groups have had an opportunity to hit to each position.
Pitchers are hitters in this [tag]baseball[/tag] drill also. The infielder then hit the outfielders flyballs and grounders in three groups. A bucket is set up at third, 2nd and 1st and the infielders hit to the field that is closest to them. The hitters and fielders benefit from this baseball drill and they have fun too.
