One of my favorite [tag]softball drills[/tag] that I like to incorporate at my practices is one that I personally learned while playing softball in college.   It’s the 2-hand [tag]soft toss drill[/tag].

You set up like the normal soft-toss drill, but instead of having only one [tag]softball[/tag] in your throwing hand, you have two.   The ball in your right hand acts like the “fastball” while the ball in your left acts as “the changeup”.

It makes sure that your ballplayers are keeping their weight on their back foot and not lunging at the ball.   It also shows the player and the [tag]softball coach[/tag] where the players’ hands are when starting their swing.

It takes some getting used to by the players, but once they get used to it, that’s the only way they want to do soft toss.
