This drill is used to have everyone participate in fielding, catching and throwing.
Have everyone spread out evenly into deep infield positions. One player on first and another player for backup to the first baseman. Have an assistant be the catcher or use another player.
Start the drill by having the coach say, “ready.” This is a cue for getting all the players into a ready position.
Hit grounder or fly balls to them. They will need to be sure and call it if it is a fly ball. Make sure fielders set up in proper fielding positoin. Once the catch is made a good throw to first base is then made. The first basemen then throws the ball to the catcher.
If a ball is missed the player missing the ball runs and retrieves the ball, runs back, and rolls the ball into the backstop while everyone else continues on with the drill. After they all have received at least one ball hit to them, tell the players to switch positions. At that time the player that is backing up the first baseman becomes the first baseman. The first baseman goes to where third would be and everyone else rotates toward first.
