First Baseman Pick Drill ~ Realistic Repetitions For Fielding Throws In The Dirt!
The first baseman pick drill is a quick and effective activity for developing those slick fielding players that are the glue, holding your infield together.
Someone once told me that anyone can play this position. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Your infield will be as successful, as the player on that corner, is competent.

Firstbaseman Pick Drill ~ Tips From the Dugout
Have the 1B's start from off the bag so that they have to move and locate the bag with their throwing side foot.
They should square up to where ever the ball is coming from.
Watch to see that they wait to see where the ball is headed, before they stretch. Stretching too soon can get them tied up.
Play the ball first, the bag second.
Go down to up with your glove, dragging your glove along the ground, as long as possible.
The Key: Make the pick with the glove open.
Anything from your glove side leg, towards your back hand side, back hand the pick.
