This is one of the softball training drills sent to me by one of my subscribers. Try this out with your team tonight!
A great pre-game or pre-practice softball warm-up drill:
4 corners drill
Divide players up into 4 groups, 12 players works great, 3 in each corner.
Groups should be about 30-40 ft apart.
Groups should be placed on the field in relation to each base, basically set-up a smaller diamond.
Home plate group starts. Player in the front of the line rolls the softball to the player in front of the 3rd base group.
3rd baseman fields the ball with proper mechanics, does a proper pivot throws to the player at 2nd base position
2nd base catches properly, pivots and throws to 1st base, who catches, pivots and throws to home plate, who starts again by rolling.
As each softball player completes their function, they run to the back of the line where they threw the ball to. Stress crisp, chest-high throws, good pivots, quick hands and quick runs between positions.
