RAPID FIRE BOBBLE DRILL
PURPOSE: To allow players the opportunity to gain control of a ball that is not handled properly.
EQUIPMENT: Glove and Ball
SET-UP: Depending on age/ability, players should be approximately 30-60 feet apart.
EXECUTION: Players throw the ball back and forth to one another as fast as possible. As player receives the ball, they bobble it on purpose. As the ball is bobbled, player must quickly and calmly regain control and return the throw.
COACHING TIPS: To make this drill even more fun and effective put your players in a competitive situation by having them race to a certain number or throws or set up a timed challenge where players count out how many throws they can make in an allotted time.
"Sometimes player's don't field or catch a ball cleanly, if they've actually practiced recovering from their bobble, they will be able to gain control of the baseball right away."
