" A few years ago I was trying to come up with some new drills to run at my baseball camps, as I was looking throughout my garage I noticed a variety and plethora of different style balls. I decided to allow hitters to try hitting all of them, and was this drill ever a HIT! Players were begging for one more round of variety soft toss."
