The Marshmallow Drill
When teaching our players the fundamentals of fielding fly balls, we use marshmallows for this [tag]baseball drill[/tag]. When we toss the marshmallow up in the air, the kids take their two steps back, come in with their arms up as if getting ready to catch a fly ball (without their glove on). We use the “thumb-to-thumb” method. It helps them guide the marshmallow to their mouths without using their hands to touch the marshmallow. If they catch it, they eat it. If not, they try again.
The kids love it because they get to eat marshmallows, plus it teaches them the fundamentals of fielding fly balls.
I coach [tag]baseball[/tag] to 5-7 year old coach pitch players.
In the beginning we made a game out of hitting a bucket with the baseball using the nose, toes, throw’s concept. If they hit the bucket, the [tag]baseball coach[/tag] owed them a piece of bubble gum and they would get it the beginning of the next [tag]baseball practice[/tag] to chew during practice.
The first time, only one or two hit the bucket. By the third or fourth practice everyone was hitting the bucket. The bubble gum seemed to be a great motivator.
