This drill provides game-like situational pressure to make accurate throws during plays.
Separate the players into two teams. (One will be fielding and one will be batting)
Place 3 balls on the ground evenly spaced, about 3/4 of the way from third base to home.
The fielding team has a third baseman and a group at second base.
The other team is at bat (without bats). When the coach yells, “Go”, the batter (runner) runs as fast as he/she can to first base and on to second.
The fielder at third base runs to the first ball and makes a throw to a teammate at second base, then goes to the second ball and makes a throw to the same fielder at second base and does the same thing with the third ball.
If the runner gets to second base first, or if the fielder makes a bad throw or bad catch, the batters get 1 point (you can use any value you want). If the fielders get all 3 balls to second base before the runner gets there, no points are awarded.
After every player on the fielding team has had a chance to make the plays at second base then the teams will switch.
