I got the inspiration for this coaching tip from Noah.   It includes some fresh ideas on [tag]fastpitch drills[/tag].   Try them out and let me know what you think!Fastpitch Drills

Routine [tag]double plays[/tag] in youth [tag]softball[/tag] happen very seldomly, right? At least the full one. For this [tag]drill[/tag], eliminate one step:

– 5-4: half at 3rd, half playing 2nd. Ground ball to 3rd base, throw to 2nd. 2nd basemen move to end of line at 3rd, vice versa.
– 6-4: half at SS, half playing 2nd base. Ground ball to SS, throw to 2nd. Same movement of players.

– 4-6: Same placement of players as above. Ground ball to 2B, throw to 2nd base.
– 6-4 or 4-6: same placement before the play and same movement after the play, but now: hit either to 2nd baseman or SS; other one covers bag.

See how they adjust.
