Looking for [tag]softball pitching tips and drills[/tag]? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea from John and let me know how it goes for you.
A [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] I do is one that allows [tag]pitchers[/tag] to work on their pickoff moves, [tag]baserunners[/tag] work on reading the [tag]pickoff[/tag] moves and [tag]fielders[/tag] to work on covering their base on a pickoff. Here is how it goes:
1. Add another pitching rubber about 5′ on each side of the existing pitching rubber on the infield.
2. Put a runner at 1st, 2nd and 3rd, along with a fielder covering that base.
3. Have the [tag]pitcher[/tag] nearest 1st base working on pickoffs going to that base, with the baserunner working on his lead-off and getting back when the pitcher throws over to first, and the baserunner getting a good jump when the the pitcher goes home.
The Pitcher in the middle works to 2nd base and the pitcher closest to 3rd works that base.
After 10 minutes or so the pitcher rotates to a different rubber as does the baserunners.
