Fielding Drill - Flip and Shuffle
Grab a partner and stand 15 feet apart
One person take a knee and the other get into the fielders position
The fielder should have bent knees with glove and top hand out in front close to the ground.
Role a baseball to the fielder’s right, the fielder should shuffle to receive the ball in the middle of the body.
The fielder will flip the ball back and shuffle to the left as the partner roles another ball to your left.
As a Fielder you will be shuffling about 10 to 15 feet.
If you work hard and do it right you will be sweating and legs burning. After about 15 to 20 reps switch it up.
Keys to this drill are fast pace, solid flips and roles. The fielder is in constant motion in a squatting position at all times.
This drill is great for range of motion and stamina as well as maintaining the proper fielding position.
