Try these [tag]coaching baseball tips[/tag] with your team. This is a [tag]baseball drill[/tag] I do during my first week of [tag]baseball practice[/tag] with my younger players. It is an excellent way to start your season!
In order to learn the basic fielding positions, I have my players stand on home plate and shout “4-homeplate” then run to first and shout “1-first base” next run to second base and shout “2 second base then run to third base and shout “3 third base” and then run to pitcher’s rubber and point to the rubber and yell “pitcher”.
Now, from the pitching circle, every player turns, points, and shouts out the position I ask for (left, right, catcher, center, shortstop etc.) To finish, starting from the pitching rubber and ending at the pitchers rubber, I instruct them to run to each position and shout out as a group the name of the position as they arrive at that position.
