Two Ball Baseball Fielding Drill

How it Works

  1. Coach throws a ball to the outfielder’s left, he runs over, catches it and throws it back.
  2. Now coach throws a ball to his right. He runs over, catches it and throws it back.
  3. Drill continues with coach alternating which side of the outfielder he throws the ball to.

Coaching Tips

  • Coach should throw a mix of fly balls, line drives and ground balls.
  • Outfielder should be getting behind the ball when possible and using good footwork to have momentum going forward with his throws.
