Take a look at this submission from Ray in Palm Springs. A great suggestion for improvised [tag]baseball training equipment[/tag] to use with [tag]T-ball drills[/tag]. Easy to make, able to adapt as they grow and very effective.
T-Ball Drill —
When [tag]baseball[/tag] coaches practice throwing with T-ballers the kids return the throw to a much taller person then they are.
When they do a bucket throwing [tag]baseball drill[/tag], they are throwing at the ground practically. So unless they are playing catch with another player they aren’t really simulating game play.
I’ve taken an old 5 gallon bucket filled it with cement and stuck in the cement a 12″ piece of ½” all thread. Fill the bucket to about 6″ from the top. Leave 6″ of all thread out of the cement. Wait till it hardens. Using an old tire drill a ½” hole in the middle of the tire tread. Place tire over all thread and secure with a couple washers & nut.
You now have a target about the height of a t-ballers glove. As your kids grow-up I just set the bucket atop a cement block or two. Works great for [tag]baseball pitching[/tag] practice also.
