This idea on [tag]youth softball practice drills[/tag] comes courtesy of Noah.
For someone new to [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]pitching[/tag]: once he learns the motion, he has to follow these steps (completion is about 5 in a row). This [tag]drill[/tag] will show fast pitching improvement with your new players.
a – Throw to the catcher’s target; catcher is standing up.
b – Catcher sits down; throw strikes down the middle.
c – Catcher now puts glove either on the left side or right side of the plate; pitcher has to throw a catchable ball to the correct side (height doesn’t matter)
d – Progression to target work: low outside, high inside, etc.
