I find that the traditional wisdom on [tag]fastpitch softball drills[/tag] is a bit stale. Here’s an idea from Barb that has livened things up quite a bit in my practices.
One of my [tag]softball[/tag] drills we use every practice is our stutter step and look [tag]drill[/tag].
We have a pitcher on the mound, a catcher, and a third baseman. We place a runner on third, pitch jump off the base learning timing and speed to our comfort zone, evaluate the pitch , steal or return.
We also practice a full speed off the bag, stutter step to delay steal or full speed to the plate after a hit.
Another one we do is have a batter bunt run the base runner into position and get home.
It is very helpful teaching situations to improve scoring.
