The Walk – Pitching Drill

Fastpitch Drills

The purpose of this drill is to build endurance and strengthen the lower body, using it as a generator for her pitching.

The pitcher stands 60 feet away from a partner, also a pitcher, in a grassy area, ball diamond, or gymnasium.

The pitcher takes approximately three walking steps toward her partner before she steps into her pitching motion.

Once in the motion, she throws the ball to her partner, attempting to keep the ball in the air.

She must use her legs and lower body in order to get good lift on the ball.

After she releases, the pitcher takes three steps back to the 60 foot distance.

Once the partner receives the ball, she then performs the same drill back to the original thrower.

Have each pitcher pitch 25 balls.
