Outfielders learn to run through the catch to properly transfer to the throw.

Set two cones approximately 5-6 feet apart in the outfield.


  1. The player lines up at the front cone.
  2. The coach stands next to the player with a softball.
  3. The coach says, “go.”
  4. The player goes backward to the second cone.
  5. The coach tosses the softball into the air, and the player times her move forward to catch the ball while running.





Coaching Tips:

  • This drill is all about timing. The player should keep her feet moving and explode forward through the ball to maintain momentum for the throw.
  • After the catch, the player should bring their glove hand and throwing hand back as if going to throw the ball.
