Follow your throw.
Tony submitted: All players at SS position. Put a guy on 1st base,2nd base,3rd base and home plate. Coach has fungo bat in front of home plate.
Coach hits ball to 1st guy in line at SS...SS throws to 1st..follows his throw and replaces guy on 1st...guy on 1st throws to 2nd,,follows his throw and replaces guy on 2nd base...guy on 2nd throws to 3rd base...follows his throw and replaces guy on 3rd base...guy on 3rd base throws to home...follows his throw and replaces guy on home plate..guy on home sprints to back of line.
Repeat as many times as you like to get the guys makeing proper throws.. The guys should be sprinting to each base. I usually go through the line once and the 2nd time I will hit a grounder as soon as the guy running from 2nd gets past the SS..
After a few times through the line the guys will be huffing and puffing a bit if they are sprinting.
Proper fielding technique
Proper throwing technique
I use this at the high school level but have also used it from age 12 and up..even in softball.
Rick answered: Tony, looks like a great drill, works on playing catch, if not the most important element in a players game, certainly in the top 2.
The team that plays catch the longest generally wins!
