Softball Fielding: Turning the Double Play
Purpose: To have the softball infield turn double plays as in a game.
Procedure: Infielders assume normal double-play defensive positions. The shortstop and second baseman shade several steps toward second. The hitter at home hits ground balls to all infielders so that they can practice proper angles, feeds, and pivots. Don't forget to include the pitcher and the catcher fielding and throwing to second base. Include all types of hits - slow grounders, high bouncers, and hard shots - to all parts of the infield.
