Welcome to this aerobic defensive baseball workouts
Developing quick hands and feet on all defensive plays are the goal in this warm up drill. If you are ready, let's go.
For most infielders, the backhand play is the toughest play, not only to catch, but also to complete the play, as they are usually moving away from the direction of the throw. This is also a difficult play for coaches to teach, as many coaches do not know the little details that help players make this difficult play.
Along with stealing a base, no play excited me more than making relay throws. The opportunity to throw a runner out from advancing, especially to home plate, was thrilling every time. Just like stealing a base, fractions of seconds determine the outcome. Any false move or slight hesitation resulted in the safe or out difference.
