Baseball Practice Drills

One of the biggest areas that coaches could always use fresh ideas for are baseball practice drills.

A baseball drill I do is one that allows pitchers to work on their pickoff moves, baserunners work on reading the pickoff moves and

fielders to work on covering their base on a pickoff.
Here is how it goes:
1. Add another pitching rubber about 5′ on each side of the existing pitching rubber on the infield.
2. Put a runner at 1st, 2nd and 3rd, along with a fielder covering that base.
3. Have the pitcher nearest 1st base working on pickoffs going to that base, with the baserunner working on his leadoff and getting

back when the picther throws over to first, and the baserunner getting a good jump when the the pitcher goes home.

The pitcher in the middle works to 2nd base and the pitcher closest to 3rd works that base.

After 10 minutes or so the pitcher rotates to a different rubber as do the baserunners.
