This is one of the [tag]softball throwing drills[/tag] we use. I call this my three in one [tag]softball drill[/tag]. It is a fun way for the players to work on throwing, hitting the cut off, and hitting and running.
For a team of 12– break the players up into 4 teams of three, rotating throughout the game.
Three will be hitting and the rest will be in the field. No Pitcher. The [tag]softball coach[/tag] will pitch. Catcher does not need gear. Throw to the backstop. BP pitch speed
Each hitter starts with a 2 strike count. Fouls are strikes.
When the hitter puts the ball in play he runs the bases without stopping in an attempt to reach home.
While he is running the players in the field must throw the [tag]softball[/tag] into home from the position it was hit. The catcher throws to first, first to second, second to third, third to home in an attempt to beat the runner.
Balls to the outfield must also be thrown to home via cut-off man.
This drill stresses good accurate throws to each base as well as cut-off principles, as well as hitting and base running.
