Baseball Drills: Infield : Around the Horn

Drill: Around the Horn

Purpose:
This drill simulates throwing down runners, double plays, fielding grounders. Kids really enjoy it.

Equipment:
Infield area with bases and balls.

Setup:
All infield positions are used except for the pitcher. You can use this drill with 5 or rotate more players in.

Execution:

  • 5 players - all infield except for pitcher. (can rotate more in if you want, but only 5 active each time around).
  • everyone plays their position
  • ball starts with the catcher and throws to 3rd to simulate a steal throwdown
  • 3rd throws a grounder to 2nd who fields the ball and flips it to the SS covering 2nd
  • the SS throws to 1st
  • the 1st baseman throws to catcher
  • after 2 successful rounds (or whenever), players rotate. Keep rotating until all players have played all positions

You can make this deal into a team competition by keeping track of errors and who made them. Players try to finish drill with no errors.drill layout
