Drill: Relay Race
This is a good conditioning drill and helps players work on making good turns when taking extra bases.
Split your team into 2 equal squads. Have half the team at home and half at second.
Have the first player in line start with the ball in his hand.
On your signal each team will start running around the bases. After each player runs around the bases, he will hand the ball to the next player. First team to get all players completely around wins.
To add a level of difficulty and decision making, use tennis balls and let the players throw the ball to the next player anytime after he has rounded the last base.
I have bought many patches form you last winter and they were a big success. It really helped out the kids to keep them focused and motivated. IT worked so well we won the Little League Baseball championship. The kids knew that if they had a good play or kept the team up and motivated they could help out the team. It make things more fun for everyone.
