Kirk and Aaron came up with some great suggestions for these [tag]free baseball drills[/tag]. Keep ‘em coming!
This [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] works great for all ages.
Tennis Ball Drill.
Take a tennis racket and tennis balls. [tag]Coach[/tag] hits balls into air. Fielder must track ball and catch with two hands.
This drill makes [tag]fielder[/tag] squeeze glove and use two hands. Ball will pop out of glove if two hands are not used. Also if ball is missed it will not hurt fielder.
Drill that I use when we are in the gym.
[tag]Four corner drill[/tag], where we move the ball around each direction, and ground balls, trying to hit the chest with each throw. Drill that everyone uses to develop good footwork and accuracy, but I put consequences for each bad throw or missed ball. It puts pressure on them to perform with confidence and not panic.
I time them and challenge them to beat the time through the whole group start to finish and for each mistake we do sit-ups or push-ups. Great [tag]conditioning[/tag] and strength drill.
