Special thanks to Ira for sending this one in. If you’re looking for ideas for [tag]baseball training equipment[/tag] you can use with your [tag]baseball[/tag] team, you must try this out!
Here is a [tag]baseball drill[/tag] we use with great success.
Screen at 25 to 30′ away from plate. Coach pitch to hitters a bucket at a time.
The catch is – we buy 500 compression balls and the kids are hitting line drives to the fence, all over the field, and crunching the balls out of the park. The kids don’t know that the balls are hot and we don’t allow them to upswing on the balls to mess up their swings. But, you would be amazed at the confidence the kids gain at the plate.
You can add a hot 100 mph slowpitch bat 34/26 and really heat it up.
SAFETY TIP: Don’t allow infielders to field balls. All team players must be in outfield shagging balls for safety.
