Hit the Hat
Fielding & Throwing
Show proper throwing technique to players - emphasize point your glove to your target and reach back with
throwing arm and follow through. Be sure players are using their feet when they throw. Have your assistant coach
help introduce the drill.
Players should be with a partner and they should be fairly far part. Have the players take their hats off and place them about 5 to 7 yards in front of them. Players should begin throwing the ball to their partner but trying to hit their
partners hat laying on the ground. The partner who hits their partners hat the first is the winner. Repeat the drill
and have players switch partners. Make sure players are playing catch in the same direction. The X's in the diagram are the player's hats.
