Special thanks to Jimmy for sending this one in. If you’re searching for softball warm up drills, you MUST try this out!
This softball drill is our pregame warm-up and involves a lot of situations. I put a player at catcher, 1B, 2B, SS & 3B.
I start this softball warm up drill by dropping the ball in front of the plate like a bunt. The catcher fields the softball yells inside to 1B and throws to first. The first baseman throws to SS covering 2B. The SS catches the ball makes tag and tosses the ball to the second baseman. The second baseman throws to 3B who make a tag and throws to 1B. First baseman throw to the catcher who throws down to 2B. The second baseman comes in and cuts off the throw to throw back to the plate. The catcher makes a tag and throws a grounder to SS. The SS turns a 6-4-3 double play and the first baseman throws it home again.
At this point the 1B, SS, & 3B charge in for a bunt that the catcher decides where to toss the bunt while the 2B covers first. Whoever fields the bunt throws to 1B. The second baseman covering 1B throws a pop up to the catcher behind the plate and runs in. The catcher fields the pop up and all hands go in over the plate (since the team all ran into the plate) and we yell SHARKS!
This looks really good when done right. It takes a little time to get the drill but once they know where to go it is easy.
