Backyard Tips: Glove Flips

Softball Excellence
By Cindy Bristow

Object: This drill is intended to help your Little Leaguer® improve their ability to open their glove when playing defense. Many young players simply move their glove through the air without ever moving their hand inside their glove. This drill offers a fun way to practice and improve how a player’s hand should properly work inside the glove.

What you'll need: Your Little Leaguer will need his or her glove and a ball. If you want to participate alongside, you will need a glove and a ball as well.
