Purpose: Create a small field with bases about 20 to 30 feet apart as away to explain strategy and certain game situations. It is important to practice softball plays when coaching softball.

Procedure: Drill will be needing bases, balls and gloves. Have nine players take the field with everyone else watching. Rotate each player into the field after five plays. Use base runners at a later time . The instructor (will throw the ball where she wants it to go) can mimic bunt coverage, duties for backing up, cutoffs, double plays, on-deck batter responsibilities, rundowns, pop-ups, offensive signals, first-and-third offense and defense, pickoffs, and pitchouts. This activity is best served just before the start of a season. The main reason for the short field is so everyone can easily hear the instructor talking.
