Teaches players the importance of visualization when it comes to hitting.

Set Up

  • Player lines up in ready position at short stop or third base


  1. Coach rolls the ball to the player’s side so that she must use her forehand to field the ball.
  2. She catches the ball and makes the long throw to first base.

Coaching Tips

  • Player’s glove wrist should be stiff, glove held low.
  • She should sweep and funnel the ball into the glove, come up, crow hop and throw to first.
  • Adjust the difficulty by   first practicing without the ball to ensure technique is correct, and later hitting the ball to the player or rolling the ball faster.
