Find the Ball (Guelph Minor Softball Association)

PrintFind the Ball

Put players in line at first.

Have a coach simulate pitch.

First player breaks and slides into second.

Have another coach somewhere in outfield hold up a ball.

Player should pop up and “find ball” and break for third and take an aggressive turn and again “find ball”.

She then breaks for home and slides into home and returns to the line.

Emphasize: Trying to get to full speed in four steps on break to second and leaving with pitch. 

Proper sliding mechanics. “Popping up” and breaking for third.

The aggressive turn at third. This drill is good for pre-season.

They will get a workout going though this drill 4-5 times.
