Looking for [tag]free youth baseball drills[/tag]? You’ve come to the right place! Try out these ideas below sent in by Doug and let me know how it goes for you.
I have two [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] I like.
For [tag]fielding[/tag], have the kids take off their cap and hold it in their mouth (biting on the bill of the cap) then roll or hit soft grounders to them. This forces them to field the ball in front of them, and not wait until the ball gets between their legs to try and stop it….works great.
For [tag]batting[/tag] get a bag of uncooked beans (the little white ones) and toss them to the kids (about 10 feet away). The kids hit away at the beans. Even though they are small, and don’t fly straight you’ll be suprised how fast the kids learn to hit them, developing their “batter’s eye.”
