Purpose: This drill helps players work on softball throwing mechanics by measuring the speed of the release and throw by timing the ball from glove to glove. This excercise shows that a straight-line throw is a lot faster than a rainbow throw.

Procedure: Players need to form a single-file line in left field. A player tosses the ball to herself, catches it, and throws to the catcher at home plate. Draw a throwing line that players must stay behind so that all are throwing the same distance. This drill in useful in tryouts.
