Softball / Hitting

Merry Go Round

Goal:
To warm up or work on conditioning while fielding ground balls.

How to Do It:
Players stand in two fielding lines at opposite corners of the infieldone to the left of second base and one at home.

Two hitters hit or throw from the pitching-circle, one to each line. Players field and run to the end of the opposite line.

Hitters hit ground balls, fly balls, range balls, line drives, and scoops. Players return the ball to their hitter or place it in a bucket at the line they are running to.

Hitters should have a bucket of extra balls to replace balls that fielders miss so the drill can be done at a steady pace.
