Youth Softball Drills - Stride Drill

Purpose: Great drill to help your players learn to automatically step to the ball, instead of stepping out of the box while hitting. After enough practice this will become a natural instinct.

Have a coach lay face down (with a batters helmet on) and hold both ankles of the batter. The coach will control the batter's step and prevent the batter from stepping out of the box/ This will be uncomfortable for the batter, but a few reps every practice for awhile will payoff for those players who tend to bail out of the box.
