Drill of the Month - June 2007


Volume 2, No. 4  

  June 2007


Drill of the month Winner – The Star Drill


Thank you to Jim Valenta of Skokie, Ill., for his submission of the “Star Drill” for the Drill of the month contest.

Jim will receive a basic team package consisting of a manager/coach manual and 14 instructional passports compliments of Al Herback and Al Price, the authors of the Little League Education Program for Managers and Coaches.

Here is Jim’s drill:

“We love the Star Drill. It moves fast and the players really get into it. I am doing this with league-age 9 and 10 year olds. I fill the infield except pitcher, and line up the extra players at home. I hit the ball to the second baseman, he throws to third who throws to First, who throws to shortstop who throws home. As this is going on I have one of the extra guys trying to run the bases and score before the ball gets home. If you draw it out on a paper the ball makes a star.”

Again Congratulations to Jim.

If you have a drill you would like to submit for next month’s Drill of the Month contest, please e-mail it to headquarters@littleleague.org and hopefully your will be selected!
