Fielding & Throwing
catching a ball while running
Have a coach start with a player facing him in a good outfielders position. The coach will point in the direction of where he wants the player to start running. As the player starts running the coach will lob the baseball or wiffle ball in a high arc and the player runs and attempts to make a catch. The player will jog back to the line with the baseball and place it in the bucket as they await their next turn to run and catch. This drill works on footwork - using a drop step and run as well as tracking a high fly ball to catch.
