Defensive skills are just as, if not more important, than offensive skills in the game of softball. Defense does indeed win championships and therefore coaches are best advised to get their player as skilled as possible when it comes to the defensive side of the game. This drill, the short hop, gives players a chance to practice softball defense. The drill is proceeded as follows:
