Purpose: To develop proper glove technique for squeezing? the ball when running to tag an opposing base runner.

Procedure: In this fastpitch softball drills there has to be one or two softballs in each player’s glove, cones or other props to designate the playing field. Mark off the playing area on the softball diamond. Choose one player to be “it.”On the “go” command the player who is it tries to tag the other players within the confined area without dropping the ball or balls from the glove. A tagged player must sit down. As more and more players are tagged cut, the coach moves the cones in to reduce the size of the playing field and to keep the pace of the game quick. Players should keep their heads up looking at the player they’re chasing and their gloves squeezed tightly as they run with the softball.
