Baseball Drills: Team Baseball Drills : Soft Toss Scrimmage

Drill: Soft Toss Scrimmage

Purpose:
Fun quick paced game that allows players the opportunity to play many different positions.

Equipment:
Game equipment

Setup:
Split your team into 2 squads. One will play offense, one defense, just like a regular game. Since each team will be short of a full defensive team, let the defensive players determine how they will set up their defense. We usually go without a pitcher and catcher. No bunting or stealing allowed.

Execution:
The name of the game is movement. We play 6 outs per half inning.

The coach will soft toss each pitch to the hitter from the side. The hitter must swing at each pitch.

After each hitter, the defense will rotate one position. We rotate around the infield from 1st to 3rd, then to left field and around to right. The right fielder will then move to first.

Note: This is a great game to play early in the season as you get to see kids playing different positions on defense and there is a lot of moving around and action. The kids will love this scrimmage and it's a great time for you to evaluate the kids ability as they move around the field.
