Jerrod and Steve came up with some great suggestions covering [tag]free girls softball fastpitch drills[/tag].Â Keep â€˜em coming!
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.Â The purpose of this drill is to make sure the [tag]hitter[/tag] is balanced at the plate.Â The bouncer is about 30 feet from the hitter behind an L-screen.Â We attempt to bounce the ball towards the middle/away part of the plate.Â The hitter is instructed to [tag]hit[/tag] the ball middle/away.Â Great drill for off-speed pitches.
Soft Toss drill to develop timing, weight transfer, hands back and hitting off back foot.Â 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.Â [tag]Coach[/tag] will present ball high and drop it low to [tag]toss[/tag].Â At the bottom of the toss hitter takes stride keeping weight back and head from moving.Â Swing away!
Even beginning hitters will get immediate feedback.
