Hit the Bucket

Set Up: 

Players will equally divide in lines at short stop position and 2nd base  

Coaches should stand at home plate and alternate hitting ground balls to each position and evaluate the throw to hit the bucket. Keep score for each line. (Place bucket one home plate) 


Each line will take turns charging, fielding and throwing the ball at the bucket, that’s located at home plate.  

Key Focus Points:  

This drill teaches players to keep the throw to home plate low and helps not put the catcher in a bad position to field the throw.
