Color code some of your team’s supply of baseballs with blue and yellow masking tape. One‒third of the baseballs will be coded blue, a third coded yellow, and a third natural white. We want to emphasize the importance for young players to keep their eyes on the ball. The Color Code Fielding Drill is excellent and challenging.
The coach will toss a ball underhand on the ground and the fielder must watch the ball into his glove, recognize the color of the ball, and yell it out. The player watches the ball into his glove and yells out blue, yellow, or white when he recognizes the ball.
It is also highly recommended to do this t-ball drill (and others)
bare handed before you use gloves.
Don't wait! Change the way you coach youth baseball & softball!
