I have a very young group of boys, some even 5 yrs old. I like running stations since the younger ones have a short tension span. I use these free youth baseball drills to begin practice.
First, I use the Alligator drill. It works well for anyone on the team but especially the younger ones. The other drill that I learned at a camp works really well on teaching this age group to get their hands out in front. I call it the “Defensive Bat Drill”.
Put a bat down on the ground and have the player stand behind it a couple of feet. Roll the baseball toward the bat and teach them to field the ball in front of the bat–-of course without stepping on the bat.
This just helps them learn to keep the glove out in front of them and again works great with the Alligator drill for beginners.
