High Ball Tee Drill

Nov 09, 2020
 

Hey, guys.

One question I've been getting asked a lot lately is how to handle pitches up in the zone. I've got some baseball players that do a really good job hitting the ball middle, doing a good job going down and getting the ball that's low. But they're struggling on balls up. In softball, I have girls that are great hitters, but struggle with rise balls.

Okay? So two simple drills to help...

Timing and Rhythm at the Plate

Nov 07, 2020
 

Hey guys, I get this one a lot. You go to the field and you're facing a really slow pitcher. And you hear kids in the dugout, "This guy throws too slow, or this girl throws too slow. I can't wait back." You'll hear coaches say, "Sit back and wait for it."

Kids struggle. They'll be way out in front. They'll hit rollovers. The biggest key when we're hitting different velocities is making sure...

Med Ball and Smushball Warm up

We get asked a lot of questions from coaches on what to do before games with their players if there are no batting cages.

We are going to explain in this video exactly what that means to get as much as you can get.

How to Stay Below the Ball on Tags

Nov 02, 2020
 

When we are covering the base we want to make sure that we stay below the ball.  What does that mean to stay below the ball?  That means that we start low and stay low on the throw so we can be athletic.  If the throw is a good one we want to be flexible and be able to tag quickly.  On a bad throw that is going to bounce before it gets to us we want to make sure our glove is...

The 4 Cone Hop Drill

Nov 02, 2020
 

Learn how to create depth with your feet to help your infielders with hard hit balls.

Often times the ball is hit to your sides and we need to be able to help our eyes see the hop better.  By drop stepping to the left or right it allows us to create an angle and gives us more time to react. So often the players are taught to attack the ball but thats not always the case.  When balls...
