Jerrod and Steve came up with some great suggestions covering [tag]free girls softball fastpitch drills[/tag].  Keep ‘em coming!Free Girls Softball Fastpitch Drills

From Jerrod…
Bounce Drill – My players and I believe in this [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag].

We use dimpled machine balls because they are easy to bounce.  The purpose of this drill is to make sure the [tag]hitter[/tag] is balanced at the plate.  The bouncer is about 30 feet from the hitter behind an L-screen.  We attempt to bounce the ball towards the middle/away part of the plate.  The hitter is instructed to [tag]hit[/tag] the ball middle/away.  Great drill for off-speed pitches.

From Steve…
Soft Toss drill to develop timing, weight transfer, hands back and hitting off back foot.  Seems like a lot but the drill is simple and will have immediate results.

Assuming grip is correct and stance is solid have hitter pick up lead foot and balance on back foot.  [tag]Coach[/tag] will present ball high and drop it low to [tag]toss[/tag].  At the bottom of the toss hitter takes stride keeping weight back and head from moving.  Swing away!

Even beginning hitters will get immediate feedback.
