Looking for fastpitch softball drills? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
Here is a softball drill we use with great success.
Screen at 25 to 30′ away from plate. Coach pitch to hitters a bucket at a time.
The catch is – we buy 500 compression balls and the kids are hitting line drives to the fence, all over the softball field, and crunching the balls out of the park. The kids don’t know that the balls are hot and we don’t allow them to upswing on the balls to mess up their swings. But, you would be amazed at the confidence the kids gain at the plate.
You can add a hot 100 mph slowpitch bat 34/26 and really heat it up.
SAFETY TIP: Don’t allow infielders to field balls. All team players must be in outfield shagging balls for safety.
