Coming up with new ideas for [tag]softball batting drills[/tag] can sometimes be a challenge.  Here’s a tip that has worked well for me in the past.Softball Batting Drills

From Robert…
Here’s a [tag]softball batting drill[/tag] that I use:

Equipment:
3 different sizes of 1” PVC pipe (I coach 10U team so I have 26”, 28”, & a 30” pipes)
Bucket of golf ball size wiffle balls
Bucket of softball size wiffle balls

Drill:
Using the pipes as bats, I just have them start trying to hit the golf ball wiffle balls as many times as they can.  I vary from tossing it from the side, just behind them, and also from the front.

This can be a very frustrating [tag]softball drill[/tag] so I like to show them how much they are improving by first tossing a few of the [tag]softball[/tag] size wiffle balls to let them see how they are striking them and then again after the drill and they can usually see a substantial increase in not just the number of hits, but also how much more centered they are hitting them.

Then they end up wanting to do the drill more.
