The most underrated aspect of winning baseball is defensive play.

In his first two seasons at Point Loma Nazarene, Joe Schaefer has guided his team to two NAIA World Series appearances. Much of his success stems from his emphasis on defensive play. In this baseball DVD, he guides you through many of the defensive drills that he uses in practice to fine tune his infielders' mechanics and keep them sharp throughout the season.

Learn a warm-up progression to get your athletes ready for practice. These exercises get the arms and feet moving on every catch and throw to simulate game play. Schaefer then moves into seven drill areas that will put your infielders in many different defensive situations. These drills include:

  • Glove Only Drill - Reinforce proper glove position and aggressiveness when fielding ground balls.
  • Short Fungo Drill - Train players to go both right and left, improve their reaction time and teach them to dive with confidence.
  • Do or Die Drill - Develop effective technique for a slow roller or high chopper.
  • Backhand Short Hops with a Throw Drill - This drill is great for hand eye coordination as it focuses on catching and transitioning, while reinforcing proper footwork, glove position and body position.
  • Ball in Glove Double Play Drill - Schaefer gives you different variations of this drill that will enable you to start in different receiving positions and work on footwork, transition and making a strong throw.
  • Short Hop Double Play Drill - This drill places an emphasis on the catch, while reinforcing proper glove position and footwork around the bag.
  • Ground Ball Communication Drill - Allows infielders to work on off-balance plays and communication to minimize errors.

These drills will improve fielding technique and awareness with a game-like atmosphere. You will see how being aggressive when charging the baseball will give your athletes confidence during game situations.

Make fewer errors using these excellent fundamental infield drills!
