Youth Baseball Drills - Outfield Throwing Drills



Purpose:
Helps develop the outfielders throwing accuracy and emphasizes the importance of throwing the ball low and on the line. This drill also works on helping the players understand alignment.
Procedure:

Make sure you work all fields; left, center and right. Start off with all outfielders in left field in a single line. Infield and catcher are in their normal positions. Start off by hitting a grounder down the left field line, outfielder fields the ball and throws to second base, then goes to the back of the line. After all fielders have gone through once, hit grounder to left center, outfielder fields the ball and throws to second base, once group has completed a cycle hit grounder directly to left fielder who will now throw home. Finally, hit a routine fly ball to the left fielder, who will again throw home. After the group has completed this cycle rotate to center field and repeat drill. During this time have the infielders play their normal back-up positions for an outfield hit. On throws to second, the second baseman should cover the bag, make the tag and then throw to third base. Third base will make the tag and then throw to first base. First base will cover the bag, catch the ball and throw to the shortstop. On throws to home, catcher should catch the ball, make the tag and then throw to the shortstop covering third base, who will make the tag and throw to first, first throws to second and second back to third.
