One of my readers actually suggested this idea for posting on a [tag]little league baseball website[/tag]. I’ve included it for you below. Try it out with your [tag]team[/tag] and let me know how it goes!
One of the [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] we do is called 21 outs. We do this drill with our regular season teams and our ALL-STAR teams and they love it.
You start out with every one playing in their starting position. Start by [tag]hitting[/tag] to the [tag]left fielder[/tag]. If you hit a pop up that’s one out; if you hit a grounder, the [tag]fielder[/tag] has to hit the cutoff man and then he has to make a good throw to 2nd base. If he does, then that’s an out. If not, you start back at 0 with your outs.
In the [tag]infield[/tag] we start out [tag]throwing[/tag] to 1st base. After every one has done that we try to turn a double play. As we do the [tag]drill[/tag] the kids will call out the number of the out, and when they mess up you will here the number 0 a lot but don’t worry, after a while the drill starts clicking and goes very smoothly.
The kids love this drill. We have actually went to 60 with our outs.
