Looking for drills for outfield conditioning for softball? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
The softball drill I would like to share may be known but it if done properly and quickly is a nice warm up to show off before a game. We also do this drill daily as a warm up and conditioner.
Our current starting drill starts with the entire team huddled up, we do our standard 1-2-3 go team and disperse evenly to the bases. (Even the outfielders)
Starting with the catcher start around the horn with the person throwing to first then jogging/sprinting to the base thrown to. The receiver performs a proper glove side rotation lining up with the next base.
Continue for 4-6 rounds then reverse. Throws now will be more conventional. Of course if you are left handed, the first set will be more natural and the second half you will spin to align your throw.
Points to stress are: throw to the base. Give a good target. Not every throw will be online, be able to make a decision if it is actually better to “turn glove side” or throw with your momentum to the base.
