Baseball Fielding Drills

William and Clint came up with some great suggestions covering baseball fielding drills. Keep ‘em coming!

From William…
For this time of year, we practice inside. I use the wall drill for my outfielders. I have my six outfielders stand in two rows, 3

in each row, about 5 feet a part. They turn their backs to the wall, I throw the ball against the wall and I yell “GO”. All the

fielders turn around and the fielder closest to the ball yells “Mine” and make the catch.

From Clint…
We have a ground ball baseball drill that we love.

You make three lines and need three coaches.
The first coach throws a ground ball to the left and the fielder must shuffle to the left catch the throw back to the coach.

Then the fielder goes to the next line where that coach throws to the right.

Then the fielder goes to the next line where that coach throws a fly ball.

All coaches do this continuously and the fielders keep switch lines.

This drill works on moving the feet properly to catch any ball and to make good throws.
