Baseball Conditioning Drills – Ball Handling

Looking for baseball conditioning drills? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea that James sent in and let me know how

it goes for you.

From James…
We learned a baseball drill last year that combines ball handling with conditioning. Start with an equal number of players at each

base including home.

A player standing at home throws to first and then sprints to first. After catching the ball the player on first turns and throws to

second, then sprints to second.

This continues around the bases until all the players have thrown and sprinted. You may want to start with a shorter distance for

younger players. You can also reverse the direction for something different.

Coaches can time it or record the number of drops/bad throws to track improvement. Having all of the players throw and sprint 2 and

3 times improves the conditioning aspect.
