This is a fun drill to help with players keeping their eye on the ball when hitting.
Divide the players into 2 even teams with one lined up on the first base line and the other on the third baseline.
Player will step up and 5 ball for each team will be lined up about 2 feet apart and about 4 feet away from the back stop.
The players will take their stance at the ball on the end and on the coaches command will squat and pick up the ball, soft toss it to themselves, hit it into the fence, and continue with the remaining 4 balls.
The first player to hit all 5 of the balls into the fence first wins a point for their team.
This drill will work all muscles involved in hitting to build maximum endurance and power in a player's swing.
Set up 5 different hitting stations along the fence behind home plate and one tee at home plate.
The hitting stations will be soft toss with basketballs, wiffle balls, front hand hitting, back hand hitting, and regular soft toss with softballs.
Split the players into two equal teams. One team will be feeding and shagging the balls and the other will be going through the stations.
The first hitter will begin with the station closes to third base. When finished with that station the next player will follow.
The hitters will go through all 5 stations and then step up to the plate to hit 1 ball of the tee, run to retrieve the ball and return it back to the bucket of balls at home plate. (Make sure to yell”BALL” before hitting to warn others that may not be paying attention)
After, return back to the stations and repeat the process.
This can be completed by time or by how many times a player can complete the stations. But the drill is to be done at a very quick pace.
This drill is an effective way to gain core muscles for more power when hitting
Each hitter will drop down on her right knee(similar to a lunge position)
With a 5 or 10 pound weight the players will begin holding the weight on their right side by their right knee. The players will use their core to lift the weight over their knee to the other side. And repeat completing 3 sets of 10
After the third set switch knees and repeat on the other side.
