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. Drills for Fastpitch Softball

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.

Mike’s Tip

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.
