One of my readers, Ken, suggested this idea for a softball hitting drill. I’ve included it for you below. Try it out and let me know what you think!
This is a simple softball drill that we do to keep the batters aware of the importance of putting the ball in play on a squeeze play call.
We place a player on 3rd base and a batter in the batters box.
We intentionally throw a variety of high, low, inside, and outside pitches to the batter to get them used to bunting bad pitches.
We have the third base runner complete the play also to simulate all of the action taking place on the field that can be a distraction to the batter.
Like I said, this is a simple drill that we do that can pay dividends in a tight game.
