The Noodle – Pitching Drill –

Sponsored By SoftballJunk.com

Fastpitch Drills

This drill is an effective way to practice stride-foot placement.

The pitcher should be striding across the power line and to the throwing arm side of the noodle, since this is where it is intended for the ball to start.

Hang a rope, string, or preferably a swimming noodle suspended vertically from the ceiling. The noodle or rope should be 5 to 7 feet in front of home plate and as wide as the spot where the pitcher or coach would like the ball to be when it reaches that location.

The pitcher breaks the ball around the noodle. A right handed pitcher will pass the noodle on the right side and, if the ball breaks effectively, she will see the pitch caught on the other side of the noodle.
