T-Ball America & Marty Schupak have posted a "Quick Tip."

Quick Tip From T-Ball America

and Marty Schupak's latest book T-Ball Skills & Drills


High/Low Throw!

Young players will progress with their baseball skills differently. This is a drill that some players may get and others may not. Run either a rope or a strip of blue painters tape across a fence.

Have players spaced apart and holding a pickle ball or any type of plastic ball. Call out either “high or low.” On the “high” command the player must throw the ball above the blue tape. On the “low” command the player must throw the ball below the blue tape. 

Notice the coach handing the ball to the player. Remember to separate skills so instead of the player catching the ball, hand it to him or have him pick it up himself. The coach can eventually progress to combining the skills. Coaches should have an ample number of balls. This is one of those drills that there has to be ample space between each player.

This is a great drill for working on basic throwing techniques and accuracy. Coaches and parents should be encouraged to break up each skill at first, so a player will either throw or catch a ball.
