Infield Training and Drills for All Levelsby Mike Stith
Training to field ground balls can be an uninteresting experience and create boredom amongst players. In this softball coaching course, Mike Stith introduces a variety of exciting drills that can be adapted to any age level from U10 to high school senior. He emphasizes repetitions of correct techniques to field various types of infield balls with numerous demonstrations by players of all ages.
Infielders must focus on proper footwork to the ball and then into the throw which varies with the type of ball that is hit. Players are given corrections on looking at the ball to the glove and how to use the glove hand to field the ball.

- Learn how to adapt your infield drills to the level of your players - and how to take them to the next level
- Get more runners out by mastering the techniques necessary to field any ground ball
- Train your players to throw the ball accurately using good mechanics
