Last week, I sent out a request for my newsletter subscribers to send in their favorite [tag]softball practice drills[/tag]. Check out this one below!
One [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] for [tag]conditioning[/tag] that our girls like is a game we call two person touch.
Half the team at home plate, other half split on 1st and 3rd.
[tag]Soft toss[/tag] to a team member at home. She runs bases until both of the team members (1 on first and 1 on 3rd)[tag]run[/tag] and touch the ball she hit, her team getting 1 point for each base she can touch prior to the two players reaching and touching the hit ball.
After they touch the ball the players switch from 1st to 3rd, each player hits once and each player will run for the ball twice. Then switch the half teams and have the others [tag]hit[/tag].
(Variation: let the players who are running after the ball pick it up and [tag]throw[/tag] it to the other player running) Players have fun competing, but get a good run too.
