Sarah in Tampa Springs wrote to ask if I could suggest any ideas for [tag]drills for fastpitch softball[/tag]. Here are a couple of [tag]softball[/tag] drills sent in by Margie and Mike.
Football Toss Drill
In the outfield have the coach standing with the team divided in two with half in a line of each side of him. Each player has a baseball. The first player in line hands the coach their softball. The player runs out, like catching a football pass, but they are actually catching a softball that the [tag]coach[/tag] is throwing up like a pop fly. Each player runs out away from the middle. The coach alternates lines for throwing. The players go to the other line after they catch their softball.
This [tag]drill[/tag] helps the players catch pop flys on the run.
Fill a bucket full of rice. Have the kids dig through it to get to the bottom.
Great way to develop hands, forearms and wrists.
