Fastpitch Drill: Hitting The Other Way
Equipment Needed: Pitching machine or batting tee.
Purpose of Drill: To teach your batters to drive the outside pitch to the opposite field.
Explanation of Drill: Divide the players into two teams. Line up cones behind second base. One team is on the field and the other team is at bat. Right side hitters hit to right field, while left side hitters hit to left field. If the batter does not hit the ball to the opposite field, she is out. The batter runs out her hits and she can be thrown out at first base. Foul tips are outs. Each team gets six outs. A "run" is scored each time a batter reaches first base. Members of the winning team receive an award.
