Fundamental Focus:

This progression will get your players familiar with fielding a batted ball and hitting off of a tee.

What You’ll Need:

  • Tee Balls
  • Bases
  • Buckets (3)
  • Bats
  • Helmets
  • Tees

Drill Sequence:

  • The players are divided into two teams. One team must go behind the line of cones in the field, and the other team is near home plate with a tee and plastic balls (or in line at a tee ready to take a turn).
  • On “go”, the players at the tees all swing and hit their plastic balls into the field. The players in the field stay behind the cone line to field the balls and then run to place them in the bucket that is also behind the cone line in the field.
  • The game is continuous and teams should switch sides after a specific time or until all of the balls are gone. All players (or most) are moving at all times.
