Looking for a fun way to improve your team's conditioning. Here's a drill to keep your team in baseball shape all year long.
Why Drills Need to be Fun
Everyone hates conditioning, so we try to make it as fun as possible. Our favorite, yet hardest conditioner is called the glove drill.
How the Drill Works
We split up the players in groups of 4 or 5 and they line up and put their gloves in the outfield at about 25 foot intervals apart, away from them.
They start the drill with a ball in their hand and run to the first glove and set the ball on it and come back to the line.
After this, the player goes back to get the ball and then comes back to the line. Then have them go to the second glove and set the ball down. Then go back to the line and so on and so forth, until all the players have gone through and the winners get out of laps at the end of the practice.
Add this practice rotation and you'll be shocked how effective--and fun--the drill can be.
