Two of my readers actually suggested these ideas for [tag]softball training aids[/tag].   I’ve included them for you below to try at some of your [tag]practices[/tag].   Very creative!Softball Training Aids

From Cory…
Here is a great [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] that works for keeping your head down and your eyes on the ball.   Use an eye patch and cover the front eye during [tag]soft toss drill[/tag] or [tag]pitching machine[/tag] drills then take it off and do the same drill over.

The players really learn to see and follow the ball.

From Brian…
One of my favorite [tag]drills[/tag] is something we call “field, flip, and fly”.

I picked it up somewhere but I don’t remember where.   Anyway the [tag]coach[/tag] hits a ground ball to the short stop who makes a double play flip to second base.

The second baseman then instead of throwing to first to complete the double play he throws the short stop a pop up.   He varies the pop up from behind third base to short centerfield and so on.

I like it because it moves fast and works at least three different skills.
