In this baseball video, Jim Dietz lays out the practical steps of organizing a championship defensive practice that is efficient and keeps everyone involved. Coach Dietz strongly emphasizes the importance of a set daily routine so every player knows each drill and achieves continuity in each baseball practice. Dietz's goal for each defensive practice is safety, concentration, and pride, which he emphasizes in six defensive drills through discussion and on-field demonstration. His baseball drills start with the outfielders and work into the infielders, pitchers, and catchers. Areas covered include outfield/ infield communication, relays, spin-turns, rundowns, defending the running game, bunt defense positions and execution, pitch-outs and pick-offs. In addition, a game called "Speedball," invented at SDSU, shows how to add a little fun to your baseball practice while still maintaining the purpose. Dietz shows how to create and plan an effective and efficient defensive baseball practice that achieves a flow and a daily routine to help you be organized and get the most out of your practice and players at any level.

There are some good drills in this video. Some of them could be explained a little better. I found myself needing to pause the video to write down how the drills were working. Despite that, good video with helpful drills and lets you see a high tempo baseball practice.
I tried these drills with my 12-14 year olds and they really enjoyed them. It keeps everyone involved, there is a lot going on which makes them focus on the task at hand.
Great effort. The drills are clearly explained and demonstrated on the field by Dietz's players, so they're moving at game speed. I have used these drills as a HS coach and seen improved defensive play. My kids also love the "speed ball" game he shows. I highly recommend this dvd.
