Over the head drill (Guelph Minor Softball Association)

PrintOver the head drill

Have the players line up and have one of them selected to field a ball hit over her head.

Hit or throw the ball over her head and to the right or left.

Make sure that she does not run with her glove up, but rather put the glove down and run to catch the ball and then get her glove up and make the catch.

Also, when doing these drills, make sure the fielder catches the ball in front or to her throwing side so she can make a quick release of the ball to an infielder.
