I receive many requests for [tag]youth baseball drills[/tag]. Here’s one that teaches how the importance of stepping on the base to get an out.
This is especially good for younger [tag]baseball[/tag] players who are working on the concept of stepping on the base to get an out. Split your team into two squads, half at first, the other at third. Each squad has a [tag]baseball coach[/tag] and a catcher near home plate. The squad gets in a line. The first player is at the position the rest are in line behind him.
Simultaneously, each coach hits a grounder to their fielder. The fielder fields the baseball, steps on the bag and throws back to their catcher. Count off each time the ball returns to the catcher. The fielder goes to the end of the line and the next player goes to the position to be the fielder. The process repeats. First squad to 10 wins.
