Looking for some fresh ideas for baseball drills? You’ve come to the right place! Try out these two ideas
One baseball drill that I have found that adds value is “Target Practice”. I am sure that this drill exists somewhere. Anyway here we
I set up a Juggs net (with strike zone) and a pitching rubber at 48′. I then have the player warm up and throw 15 pitches from the
stretch and 15 from the wind-up.
I then measure the accuracy rate of the player from each position so that I can understand what to develop or drawbacks that may need
to be addressed for each player during a game (i.e. if the pitcher cannot throw a strike from the wind up then they they should only
pitch from the stretch etc.).
I repeat this every couple of weeks to see if our work on pitching fundamentals is effective.
3 Home plate Drill
When we take batting practice off a machine, I like to place three home plates for the players to stand at. We take 5 cuts at the
normal distance then, move up and take 5 cuts, and then move up 5 cuts. This makes cage work more challenging and eliminates the
player getting the machine timed. I also like it because it varies what the pitch looks like without changing the machine.
