It’s very important for players to learn how to drop-step well, or they will have a lot of balls that drift over their shoulder.
Partial drop-steps on balls hit right at them is one of the most common mistakes with young outfielders. This drill will help them overcome that mistake. But it takes LOTS of practice!
Go work on it today! Your outfield WILL be better for it!
Oh, and by the way…infielders need this too. So do this drill with them standing in their positions. You will have less bloopers get past your infield I promise!
