    1. Ground ball no glove - one hand
    2. Ground ball glove - throwing hand involved
    3. Back hands
    4. Forehand slaps
    5. Star transition drill
    6. Dead ball drill
    7. Underhand toss
    8. Cross body flip
    9. Three-man relay
    10. Full field ground balls


    Outfield drills we set up the pitching machine. Let the machine throw to a specific spot
    1. Straight fly balls
    2. Fly balls in
    3. Fly balls back
    4. Fly balls moving left
    5. Fly balls moving right

    Set the machine for ground balls:
    1. GB no threat of advancing
    2. GB threat of advancing
    3. Do or dies
    4. GB's to the fence
    5. GB's right
    6. GB's left


    I would not expect anyone to know the specifics of these drills. I post only to give you a taste of what we do.

    Here is a sequence I am currently working on for infield fielding. Each drill has a coach rolling or hitting and playing first.

    Practice 1.
    I. Dead Ball Pick Up and Throw
    II. Slow grounder catch and Throw

    Practice 2.
    I. Review I & II.
    II. Hard grounder to forehand catch and Throw

    Practice 3.
    I. Review Hard grounder to forehand catch and Throw
    II. Hard ground to backhand catch and Throw
    III. King of the diamond competitive drill

    I have practice 3 coming up. So far it seems to be working. This is just part of the practice. I also have them doing game situation fielding and throwing drills later in the practice. Any suggestions on additions or improvements.
    I think agree with ages 9-11 that you should have a kid at first so they do get the feel for the game. I also think that to keep them to remember that baseball is a fun game you should make it a compitioin. For example, each round the person who misses the least does not have to do lets say five push ups while if you do miss them then you should do them.

    What's the age? This is pretty basic and should be good for youngsters. However, I would get rid of the coach at first and have the kids rotate at first base catching. This way they get the experience and you see who could be a potential first baseman or catcher.
