BVSA Teaches: Breakdown Drill

BVSA Teaches: Breakdown Drill

On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the breakdown drill. Hey guys, here’s another fun little drill to help the kids run through the first base on a ground ball to the infield. Set up a little barricade with cones or wall buckets or whatever you have. Then, use little arrows to remind them that they have to break down and look right.

They’re going to do it all the way from home plate, where they’re running hard, free to the bag. Their attention should be on the base. Here’s my imaginary line, and I can run and then further go full speed. There’s a little obstacle to go right and break it. Now, I’m turning right and seeing what’s next.

Again, I love base running drills. They love little obstacles, so have some fun with it. Hope this helps!
