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.
