One of my readers, Arturo, sent me this idea for [tag]fun softball drills[/tag].
One of the most fun end of [tag]practice[/tag] [tag]fielding[/tag] and [tag]throwing[/tag] [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] is to set up a target on top of an old stool or batting tee at 1st base.
The girl’s favorite target so far is a “Baby Bop” (Barney’s green friend) stuffed animal.
The girls line up at SS or 3rd base and the [tag]coach[/tag] hits the first fielder in line a ground ball.
If the girl [tag]fields[/tag] the ball cleanly she gets to continue to [tag]throw[/tag] and try and knock over the stuffed animal on first.
If the ball is booted the girl must throw the ball back to the hitter without throwing at the target and goes back to the end of the line.
The girls really get into it and have fun at the same time they are sharpening there [tag]fundamentals[/tag]!
