Special thanks to Robyn for sending this one in. If you’re searching for [tag]softball fielding tips[/tag], you should try these out!
A [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] I use is “Around the Field”. You may have already heard of this one but….
-Split into 2 teams…1 team is [tag]runners[/tag], the other is [tag]fielders[/tag].
-Catcher starts the cycle by [tag]throwing[/tag] to 2nd (continues around the
field-NO pitcher), as the [tag]runner[/tag] is running the bases
-The object is to get the ball back home before the runner – NOT to get
the runner out
What it teaches the fielders:
1. know what to do with the ball when they get it – know where to go with it
2. [tag]throwing accuracy[/tag]-the team is depending on you to make a good throw (and catch)
3. move FAST
What it teaches the runners:
2. focus on the objective and teamwork to depend on your team (in this case, the runners) to tell you where the ball is
