|FIELDING: CLOCKWORK DRILL |
|One drill I use with outfielders is called "clockwork". |
A cutoff-approx. 50 ft. from the catcher. And 5 or 6 outfielders-each spread out from right to left, approx. 50 ft. from cutoff. I start be hitting a ball to the girl farthest left, she throws to cutoff, cutoff throws home. After throwing to cutoof the fielder then runs to take her spot, the cutoff after throwing home, runs home to become catcher, and the catcher is to run to the openspot in the outfield. In a short amount of time fielders get to field in all outfield positions,work on throws, and get some conditioning.
