Past Winter Workout drills

Added February 5, 2019  

I love this drill because it helps kids understand how to be athletic, track the ball, and make small swing adjustments in order to make contact with the bat barrel.  Just a tennis ball and a bat, that's all you need.

 These next two videos are critical to developing good fielding skills and habits.  We are using these fielding warm-ups each week.

 This video expand on the concepts in the video above.  While this video is a long, it is a great watch to learn how MLB players learn and expand their skillsets.
