Drill: Full Count or 2-1 Scrimmage
This scrimmage is designed to speed up the pace of a normal scrimmage and put pressure on the pitcher to throw strikes and the hitter to swing.
Split your team into 2 squads.
Decide on a 3-2 or 2-1 count to start each hitter. This will depend on age and how far you are into the season.
Other than the count you will be playing a normal scrimmage.
This scrimmage forces the pitcher to try and throw a first pitch strike. There is no room for error especially with older players that start off 3-2. This drill also helps players go up to the plate with the attitude that they are going to have to swing the bat.
