Fungo Groundballs

Setup- You will need all four bases for this drill and all infielders. 

Movement- The coach will hit a ground ball to any of the infielders and they will throw to the plate where the catcher will practice making tags. (Coach can vary this drill by making the infielders throw to different bases.) 

For younger players, you may want to start with rolling the ground balls and working up to hitting them from a bat as they improve. 

Key Focus Points- The point of this drill is for the fielders to be able to field the ball cleanly, gather and make an accurate and timely throw to the plate, and for the catcher to work on applying the tag.
