Barehand Pop-Ups

Setup- You will need a ball that is softer than a baseball such as a tennis ball, racquetball, rubber balls, etc.  

Movement- Coach will throw the ball into the air and the athlete will catch the ball barehanded and toss it back to coach. The coach and athlete do not need to be more than 10-15 feet apart.  

Key Focus Points- The main purpose of this drill is for the athlete to be able to track the ball all the way into his hand.
