Looking for [tag]youth softball drills[/tag]? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea below that Jack sent in and let me know how it goes for you.
I do a [tag]softball drill[/tag] that I call “multiple hit” drill.
Basically what we do is have 4 lines on the right field line of 4 players–an outfielder, a infielder, a fungo hitter and a catcher/ball feeder.
The object is to hit ground balls to the infielder at a high rate of speed (as soon as they release the ball the next grounder should be on the way). Every 5 to 10 balls the hitter hits a fly ball to the outfield and the infielder turns into the cutoff man.
If done right this drill does a lot of things:
1. infielder gets a high volume of ground ball work
2. outfielders work on hitting cutoffs
3. infielders work on cutoff transition to throwing to target and
4. This drill builds up endurance for the infielders because you can move them left and right.
My kids actually enjoy this [tag]softball[/tag] drill and we have seen results from our infielders.
