Hit the Bucket – Fielding Drill

Sponsored By SoftballJunk.com

Fastpitch Drills

This drill improves throwing accuracy and footwork in the infield.

Divide the team into two groups. Half are positioned at short stop and the other half are positioned at second base.

Mark off a starting point that the girls must stay behind until a ground ball is hit to them by a coach at home plate. Each group alternates players fielding ground balls and throwing to home plate where two stacked buckets are located.

Each time a player hits the top bucket on a bounce 1 point is awarded. Hitting the bucket without a bounce gets 2 points. The first group to 10 points is the winner.
