BVSA Teaches: Backhand Drill
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the backhand drill. Hey guys, Frank here at an empty field. I hope you’re doing okay at home. I know this has been tough, but let’s stay patient, strong, and productive. Here’s a quick tip for you—a drill for the backhand play. As a shortstop moving to your right, sometimes you need to run towards the ball, stick your right foot in the ground to stop yourself from going further, and make a strong backhand throw. It’s important to be confident in your backhand play.
Here’s a great drill you can do at home. Set up balls at a shorter distance than what I have here, and imagine yourself as the shortstop throwing to first base. Come in hard for the ball, plant your right foot to change direction, simulate the backhand, and get into your throwing position. Repeat this drill over and over to improve your backhand skills. Keep working on it, even if there’s no game or moving balls. It will make you better. See you soon.
