One of my readers suggested this idea for [tag]practice drills for youth baseball[/tag]. I’ve included it for you below.
I [tag]coach[/tag] 6-8 Instructional Baseball and found that this is a fun[tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] to end each [tag]practice[/tag] with. It gets the kids heart rate up while teaching them the right direction to run the bases.
-Divide the team into 2 groups.
-Place Group 1 at Home Plate and Group 2 at second base.
-One player from each group will race around the bases, one starting at home, the other starting at second base.
-Once the player make it back to their starting point, the next player in line will go, until the entire group has raced around the diamond.
-Once that race is over, switch the groups, sending the second base group to home and the home plate group to second – race again.
