Looking for a softball bunting drill? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
During bunting practice my softball players like when I time them getting the bunt down and running to 1st base.
The girls really seem to enjoy the competition and soon become aware of how important it is to get out of the box and to 1st quickly.
Here is a softball drill we have used for several years coaching our daughter. Basically we call it the fence game.
1st you separate the players into 2 teams.
1 team is batting and the other team is running.
Have a coach pitch to the girls or you can use a tee for younger players.
The team batting will have the 1st player up and the other team will have 2 girls holding the backstop fence.
The coach pitches and as soon as the ball is hit the 2 girls will run the ball down and touch it. In the meantime the batter will be running the bases. The batter has to see how far they can get before both players running touch the ball. Continue this for all batters on that team then switch teams once you go through the 1st team’s lineup. Tally up the runs to see which team wins.
