This fielding drill demonstrates the correct technique to use when a runner is on base.

When there is a man on 2nd base and there’s a ground ball hit out to the outfielder, the fielder has to come to the ball with his glove out to the side of his foot, right into a crow hop and throw, keeping his glove down on the ground.

This play is not designed to field with two hands. This play is used when an accurate, quick and strong throw is needed to the plate.

  • Scoop the ball with one hand.
  • The glove should be on the outside of the glove side foot.

It is important that you charge the ball, field it to the side of your body and get directly into the Crow Hop throwing motion.
