Baseball Drills: Defensive Baseball Drills : Infield : Bucket of Balls with Runners

Drill: Bucket of Balls with Runners

Purpose:
The addition of runners to the bucket drill will help simulate real game situations for both the defense and the baserunners.

Equipment:
Infield area with bases and a bucket or bag of balls and helmets for the runners.

Setup:
All infield positions are used except for the pitcher.

Execution:
This is a team drill where you'll split your team into two groups. One group will play defense and one group will run the bases. Start with a player at each position, except second base and pitcher. Empty the balls near home plate and count them before the drill starts or keep track of errors. Place the bucket in foul territory next to 3rd base. Have runners at home, 1st base, and 3rd.
