This is a [tag]softball sliding[/tag] drill that can be added to the other “feels like” [tag]softball mechanics[/tag], but seems to be somewhat more simple to do on the floor of a gym. It provides the feeling of what sliding feels like for those who are fearful of it in the first place.
This is especially easy for older [tag]softball[/tag] players (girls that are fearful), [tag]softball coach[/tag]es in training, and demonstrators who may be uneasy about performing the bent knee slide on a gym floor.
