Chris from Iowa sent in a request for more [tag]fastpitch hitting drills[/tag] he could use with his team. Here’s a [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] sent in by Denise.
We place two buckets stacked at home with a stuffed bear on the top.
The girls split into two teams.
Each line gets hit a ball and must throw at the bear/buckets.
The team receives 1 point if they hit the bucket and the bear falls, and 5 points if they hit the bear off the top of the bucket.
After going through each line twice, the winning team receives some kind of a prize like bubblegum or candy.
This is the drill we close out practice with normally, and they always look forward to it.
