Pitchers practice hitting a target.

Drill Setup

  • Pitchers pair up and throw to each other.

How it Works

  1. Players throw the ball back and forth to each other.
  2. They have six targets – the right shoulder, right side of waist, right knee, left shoulder, left side of waist and left knee.
  3. They throw to each target five times before moving on to the next one.

Coaching Tips

  • Players should keep track of how many times they hit the target and then try to improve in subsequent practice sessions.
