From Darren…
At every practice we ask the kids to always ask themselves “what do I do if the ball comes to me?”

We then put them in a situation with runners on base, so many outs, and have them think it through and give us the answer. We have been using this [tag]softball coaching tip[/tag] for about three weeks now.

The kids have learned to survey the [tag]softball[/tag] field and take the outs into consideration and they are giving and the correct answers.   Then we put them into action.   Even in batting and base running drills they are making good decisions on what to do with the ball.   The idea is here to always having them thinking “what do I do if the ball comes to me” and soon it becomes second nature to them.
