  • Helps you have the feeling of moving through a ball with control

  • Not field on heels

  • Being able to stop yourself and “slow” the ball down


On the runs

On the runs

  • Working on leading someone

  • Having “touch” on your throws

  • do it blind/ fielding groundball


Ladder drill

Fielding at every infield position

Fielding at every infield position

  • While its fun, you are throwing from every possible position


Hot box

Hot Box

  • Makes you be quick

  • Good competition between teammates

  • Cardio workout/ focusing on staying in your legs because of fatigue

  • Focus on throws while tired

  • How many can you do in 30 seconds?


Bunt defense

Bunt Defense

  • Simulating bunt situation in a game

  • Putting it all together (fielding, communicating, executing)

  • Offensively can work on short game


Situational defenses

Situational Defenses

  • bunt/slap defense

  • 1st & 3rd defense


Bunt slap defense

Bunt/Slap defense

1.) “zone defense”/ set place where you go no matter what batter does

-good because no thinking is involved

2.)“man to man” straight up defense/batter dictates what defense does

-more advanced…need constant communication

-good because you are not giving up anything on right side

-pitchers can work more around the plate


1 st and 3 rd defense

1st and 3rd defense

  • Prefer just shortstop covering

  • 2B can be a distraction when the cut across

  • Can create different plays w/ SS covering

    1. runner on 3rd is a MUST (close game)

    2. just get an out (winning)

    3. catcher can pick at 3rd
