|FIELDING: GROUNDERS DRILL|
|I coach fastpitch girls at Northwest High School and Northwest Senior League levels, in Southern Ohio. |
Our high school and Sr. League team works frantically with this favorite of mine. It allows for each fielder to see nearly 75-100 ground balls within 20 minutes.
You need 2 coaches (if girls are skilled enough let them hit the grounders), 2 crates of balls (25 in ea.), & 2 empty crates to set at designated base.
The drill goes as follows: Grounders to 3B who throws to First; other coach hits to 2B who throws to SS covering second. Then: ss to 1B, 3B to 2b; 2B to 1B, SS to 3B; 1B to 3B, SS to 2B.
There are variations we mix in also with catcher throwing to bases.
