Purpose

Outfielder works on seeing the ball into her glove (or glove hand in this case).

Set Up

  • Player and coach stand roughly 10-15 yards apart in an open space.

Instructions

  1. Coach throws a ball past the outfielder who must turn and run to catch it.
  2. Outfielder catches the ball barehanded with their glove hand and brings it back.
  3. Next player goes.

Coaching Tips

  • Throw the ball to both sides so the outfielders work on their over-theshoulder skills in both directions.
  • Players should only be using their glove hands to catch.
  • Players should be watching the ball all the way into their hands.
