Side to Side



Set up 2 markers (cones, mitt, etc) about 10' apart on the infield dirt. Position a player between the markers. The player does not need a mitt. A coach will roll a ball to one side of the marked area. The player will slide step in that direction and bat the ball back to the coach with his or her hands. The coach will then roll a ball towards the other end of the marked area. The player slides to that side and bats the ball back to the coach. Repeat. The coach should have several balls in case one or more does not get batted back. The number of repetitions and the distance between the markers will depend upon the skill level of the players.
