Purpose: To teach the importance of squeezing the softball in the glove while running.

Procedure: In this  softball practise drill we need one ball for each line of players,gloves. Divide the team into two (or more) even lines. The first player in each line holds one or two softballs in the glove. On the “go” command the first player in each line runs to a designated area, turns around, and runs backs to his line. After running the course the player hands the softball to the next person in line.Each person gets a chance to run with the softball. The first team to finish with the softball securely maintained in the last runner’s glove wins the race. Squeezing the ball in their gloves ensures that player don’t drop the ball in an intense game situation such as a rundown. Coaches may try two softballs per line, instead of just one, to speed up the drill. Runners must hand, not throw, the ball to the next person in line. Players can also run with the ball in their bare hands.
