Sarah in Tampa Springs wrote to ask if I could suggest any ideas for [tag]drills for fastpitch softball[/tag].Â Here are a couple ofÂ [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.Â Each player has a baseball.Â The first player in line hands the coach their softball.Â 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.Â Each player runs out away from the middle.Â The coach alternates lines for throwing.Â The players go to the other line after they catch their softball.Â
This [tag]drill[/tag] helps the players catch pop flys on the run.
Fill a bucket full of rice.Â Have the kids dig through it to get to the bottom.Â
Great way to develop hands, forearms and wrists.
