Fastpitch Drills

This drill is a fun way to practice all basic base running fundamentals.

All players will begin at home plate. The players will take a swing and then take off to first as if to run to second, but only take a 3 step lead off and then dive back to the base.

The runner will quickly stand up and run to second, pop-up slide into the bag, take a 3 step lead off, and dive back to second base.

The runner will quickly recover again and take off to third, hook slide to the right of the bag to avoid a tag, recover, take a 3 step lead off, and dive back to the base.

Then the runner will recover and take off into a sprint through home plate and back to the end of the line.

There should not be any break time for runners during this drill.

After the runner in front takes off to second base then the next runner may begin.
