15 Ball Handling Drills for Infielders
with Mark Martinez,
San Diego St. University Associate Head Baseball Coach
Mark Martinez explains and demonstrates fundamental baseball drills that will allow your players to handle the ball numerous times in practice and develop the mechanics they need to field every ground ball.
Coach Martinez's ball handling drills cover three areas:
Martinez shows three ball handling drills, each with multiple variations, that will prepare your players' feet, hands, and arms for practice. These drills simulate game situations to develop reaction time, throwing on the run, getting the glove ready to catch and catching in rhythm.
These drills develop mechanics for back hands, short hops and bare hand plays. Get your players comfortable with catching the ball with a ready glove and creating a smooth transfer to make the strong accurate throw.
Martinez demonstrates three drills specifically for first basemen that work on short hops to glove side and the back hand, jumping skills on high throws, throws down the line and turning double plays.
Watch all of the drills come together in Martinez's routine group ball session. Order now to put your team on the fast track to sound fundamental infield play.
