Randy in Worcester emailed me looking for advice on [tag]high school softball drills[/tag]. Here’s a [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] sent in by Bill.
This is an [tag]outfield[/tag] drill about catching flies as well as charging or blocking balls hit in the gap.
This drill has no throwing just similated throws.
Have 1 outfielder out there catching & fielding balls hit to him.
Simulate the throw home or to a base.
Have other outfielders lined up every 25 feet or so all the way to the hitter.
Relay the ball home & save the arm but get lots of flies & grounders.
After 10 balls the fielder sprints home to hitter & becomes the catcher & everyone else moves up.
Great drill for outfield work.
