Teaches players to put the proper back spin on the ball when throwing.


Players set up anywhere on the field and use their ball from the Marker Drill.

Players focus on proper back spin.


  1. Each player holds the ball with their throwing arm at a 90-degree angle, with their elbow above their shoulder, and their glove underneath the throwing elbow.
  2. The player throws the ball forward, snapping the wrist to give the ball a good back spin.

Coaching Tips:

  • The black line on the ball should be rotating in a straight line and not wobbling.
  • The wrist should snap straight forward on the throw.
  • Players should use either the two-finger or three-finger grip, whatever’s more comfortable.
