Rotate Bag Coverage

Set Up: 

Players will divide equally and form lines at the second base and shortstop positions with their gloves.  

Coaches will stand out front to evaluate while alternating hitting balls to each position.  


Players will see what direction the ball is being hit and determine whether to charge the ball or cover the bag. The opposite side the ball is hit will cover the bag and catch the throw. Play side will charge the ball, field and throw.  

Key Focus Points:  

This drill will help the midfielders work seamlessly together.  Be sure the fielding player first focuses on fielding the ball prior to making the throw.  Also, focus on accurate throws to second base.
