Having good softball infield drills is an important part of running an effective practice.
In this weeks video tip I explain one of my favorite softball infield drills (one of many inside the Covey Sports Impact Coaching Academy) for working on multiple aspects of infield work. This is the called the 4-Corners Infield Drill.
In the video below you will see a modified version of this traditional drill, where the players (and myself) are using the drill to work on ground ball fundamentals and throws across the diamond.
Here are some other ways that you can use this drill:
This is simply making throws from one base to the other around the infield. Using good throwing fundamentals, of course.
Using the same format as what you watched in the video, simply have the players work on making throws on the run instead of setting their feet.
When throwing around the diamond from one base to the other, you can add a second ball into the drill.
That makes 4 different softball infield drills all wrapped into one traditional drill!
