DRILL OBJECTIVE
This drill is a variation on the game with a fun
scoring system.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Receiving team = Batting team
Serving team = Pitching team
Ace = strikeout and switch.
Missed serve is a walk (one base)
If receiving team looses a rally it is a
strikeout.
If a team wins the rally they get one base.
Receiving team must win 4 rallies to get a
home run and a point
After 3 strikeouts teams switch from serving
to receiving.
When the team comes in to bat again
(receive) they start again with empty bases.
The game can be played a certain amount of
innings and the team with the most runs
wins.
A whiteboard may be useful initially to help
young athletes visualize what it happening on
the pitch.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Missed serves not counting as a
walk will make it more difficult for the
receiving (batting) team.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Encourage athletes to visualize what is happening
on the pitch after each rally and evaluate their
strategy accordingly.
