This idea for a [tag]free baseball coaching[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] comes courtesy of Steven. Quite an adaptation of a basketball drill put to use as a [tag]baseball[/tag] drill!
I have a baseball drill that I tried in the spring. I thought this would work for my [tag]infielders[/tag], but I let the whole team in on it. One of the things infielders need work on at an early age in flipping the ball in way the teammate can catch easy.
I am a big basketball fan, so I thought back over [tag]drills[/tag] we use to do on the court. The three man weave is something I came up with. The players had fun and the ones that had played basketball knew how to do it as an example to the others. I ran it close together. How do you do the weave? Get three lines; player in the middle line has the ball. All three start moving the middle player flips underhand to the player to his right and curls around back of him, the player to the right moves to the middle-flips to the player on his left and curls around the back of him– then he goes to the middle and the cycle starts over. It is fun for the players and does not take to much time. The [tag]coaches[/tag] even get involved.
