Baseball Practice Drill – Drive the Ball

This is a baseball practice drill sent to me by Charlie. Try this out with your team tonight–fun and effective!

From Charlie…

2 x 2 x 2 drill

TEAM ONE: two players with one ” T” on the 1st base / home plate side of the field

TEAM TWO: two players in between 2nd base and 3rd base – playing defense

TEAM THREE: two players in the outfield – covering from the foul line to an imaginary line extended straight from 1st /2nd base.
Team one will hit a total of 10 balls off the T, (each hitting 5)

Infield defense is trying to stop any ball hit through the infield, and gets one point every time they make a good play. If the

ball gets through the infield, (for a hit) the hitting team gets a point.

Outfield – the outfield gets points for catching any ball in the air.
The hitting team can get a point if they burn, or get a solid hit in front of the outfielders.

Each team will play each area, and rotate keeping their total score.

Most points win. This baseball drill becomes very competitive, and works on driving the ball off the T.

You can have two games of this going on at the same time. The other group would set up exactly the same way – but between home and

3rd base, between 1st and 2nd base, and outfield right field foul line and the line from 2nd base out straight out from 3rd.

Lots of fun.
