I got the inspiration for these [tag]baseball coach[/tag]ing tips from my subscribers. They include some fresh ideas on [tag]team baseball drills[/tag]. Try them out and let me know what you think!
Idea- This is a [tag]baseball drill[/tag] for the pitchers. Simple but very effective.
We do 6 sets of 10. The catcher has a ball and the pitcher has a ball. The pitcher pitches the [tag]baseball[/tag] and the catcher throws the other ball back as quickly as you can. The pitcher runs back or hurries back to the mound and is ready to release as quickly as possible. He will pitch as fast and quickly as he can, not really worrying about where it hits as much, but how quickly he can get another ball and pitch it.
Good cardio workout!
Line up outfielders in centerfield with rounded open-top trash can on home plate (lying down with opening facing centerfield) and have them throw a one hopper into the trash can. It teaches the importance of keeping the baseball down while encouraging accuracy.
Award points for throwing in/near can.
