Thanks to Brett and to Moses for sending these [tag]little league baseball games[/tag] practice ideas. They includes some fresh ideas for [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]practice[/tag]. Try them out and let me know what you think!
Soft Toss Scrimmage:
Put a [tag]defense[/tag] on the field and have the rest of the players in the dugout ready to hit.
Treat it just like a game, but a [tag]coach[/tag] kneels beside the hitter and soft tosses the pitch.
“Play” 5 innings and switch.
This give the players a lot of looks at game situations. You can stop and explain different things as you go. It moves pretty fast, so it doesn’t take up the entire practice.
Have the tosser make sure they are varying the location of the tosses to keep all [tag]fielders[/tag] involved.
Place 3 [tag]runners[/tag] at 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
Place a player [tag]coaching[/tag] 1st and 3rd. Have Parents in the out field.
Throw or use a [tag]pitching machine[/tag] to throw the ball to the outfield. Depending on what base the runners are on and how many outs there are determines what the runners do.
Example: 1st base go half way, go if ball is dropped, return if ball is caught. 3rd base tag-up as soon as they see it is a flyball; go when coach says go.
