Purpose: This game preaches aggressive hitting and hustle. It is important to emphasize hustle when coaching softball.

Procedure: Will need a bat, four bases, and jugs foam bill wrapped with athletic tape. Make two teams and an assigned batting order. The pitcher is from the hitting team. This person cannot field any batted ball or else the batter is called out. The hitting team does not have to wait for the fielding team to get ready. Thus, the fielding team has to hustle out to their positions. The pitcher can stand anywhere, but has to be a safe distance away. The batter receives one pitch. A fair ball must be hit or else an out is called. No leading, stealing or bunting. It’s great to see the kids hustle after each third out. They’ll learn to place the next batter as catcher, so she can quickly jump into the batter’s box, Runs are scored in traditional fashion.
