Outfielders practice taking their eyes off the ball and switching their view to the opposite shoulder.
- Player and coach stand roughly 10-15 yards apart in an open space.
How it Works
- Coach throws a high, deep fly ball.
- As outfielder runs back she takes her eyes off the ball and switches her view to the opposite shoulder.
- She then picks the ball back up with her eyes and gets into position to make the catch.
- Remember, when outfielders are running back on a ball their toes, waist and chest should all be pointed toward the outfield fence.
- Outfielders should be making a quick turn of the head – from looking over one shoulder to looking over the other.
