Frank from Iowa sent in a request for more drills for [tag]coaching little league[/tag] he could use with his team. Here’s one sent to us by Rich.
Use this as the last [tag]base running drill[/tag]. The goal in this [tag]baseball[/tag] drill is for speed and running under pressure.
Have all your players line up at home plate.
Place a glove 8 feet up the first base line.
Have your first player start sprinting around all the bases.
When he reaches the glove, the next player in run starts sprinting and tries to pass him on the bases. This continues with all the players.
If a player gets passed or misses a base, he must do 10 push-ups.
I realize in baseball you can’t pass runners, but it gets the kids to run hard and cut the angles on the basepaths.
KIDS LOVE THIS..Place kids with equal speed back to back in the line and watch them fly…
