Purpose

Teaches batter to hit the curveball.

Drill Setup

  • Batter gets in stance in front of net.
  • Coach kneels or sits to the side of the net and the batter.
  • Use a soft baseballs or tennis ball to protect the tosser.

How it Works

  1. Coach flips the ball with an arc to simulate a curveball.
  2. Batter hits the ball on its way down.
  3. Repeat.

Coaching Tips

  • Make sure batter is going into trigger stride position and then waiting on the ball and hitting it as it is coming down.
  • This flip should have more height on it than a regular flip to the batter. Flatter flips simulate a fastball, flips with more arc simulate the curveball.
