Blade, Change Direction 

Set Up:

Players should form a line in the outfield with gloves.

Coaches should be in front with a ball ready to toss to the right- and left-hand sides of players.


Players will blade and run back towards the fence while continually looking at the coach and change blade sides as the coach directs. Coach will indicate right and left by pointing until picking a side and tossing the ball up. Players will then circle forward and field the pop up without pushing the glove.  Then throw the ball back to the coach

Key Focus Points: 

Ensure players never lose eye contact with the ball while making their turns.
