Barehand Drill

Setup- You will only need a baseball for this drill. 

Movement- The fielder will start with no glove on. He will get set into his pre-pitch routine and the coach will roll him the ball. The fielder will field through it and take shuffles as if he were going to throw the ball across the diamond. (Coach you can vary this drill by changing the pace at which you roll the ball as well as which side of the body you roll it on.) 

Key Focus Points- The purpose of this drill is to make sure that the fielder is fielding through the ball, has soft hands to be able to catch it barehanded, and be ready to make a throw across the diamond.
