Pitchers practice keeping eyes level and on the target when throwing.

Drill Setup

  • Pitchers line up anywhere on the field.
  • They each have a ball and a glove.

How it Works

Pitcher stands normally.

He holds the ball in his glove along the midline of his body.

He brings the glove and ball up together and then drops them and separates his hands – bringing the ball back and the glove arm forward.

As the pitching arm moves forward, he “barrels” his chest and squares it to home plate.

Coaching Tips

  • Pitcher should be putting his eyes “right in the catcher’s mitt” in this drill.
