Coming up with new ideas for [tag]free tee ball drills[/tag] can sometimes be a challenge. Here’s a [tag]tee ball drill[/tag] that one of my readers sent in. Very creative and effective!
[tag]T-Ball[/tag] Drill–The Speed Skater:
We line up in the outfield to do this [tag]baseball drill[/tag]. Then I have them jog (slow)….I will yell out “Left hand” and they will drag their left hand on the ground, continuing to jog….I will then yell out “Up” they will then begin to jog again….I will yell out “Right hand” and they will drag their right hand on the ground. We would continue this drill for about 5-10 minutes weaving left and right, circles. Let your imagination take control.
This is a great [tag]t-ball drill[/tag]…it breaks up the conditioning routine, builds lower back and leg strength, increases flexibility, and reinforces the importance of getting the glove all the way to the ground whether in the outfield coming up on a grounder and making a throw or in the infield “attacking” the slow grounder.
I hope this helps….I haven’t seen many [tag]baseball coaches[/tag] do it, but it was something we used to do in the old days and I have passed it on to my players.
