BVSA Teaches: Solo Footwork Drill (Ground Balls)
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the solo footwork drill (ground balls). Hey guys, I wanted to check in and share a tip with you today. It’s a basic fielding drill that you can do at home or outside if the weather is nice. I have a few balls lined up on the ground here, and you can imagine yourself as a shortstop with plates placed at first base. Let’s simulate fielding a ground ball with proper footwork.
Start by moving right left, fielding the ball slightly left of center, and then right left to get into your throwing position. Keep moving through the ball. Repeat this drill for each ball. Meanwhile, make sure you stay low, bend your knees, and get your gloves out in front of you. Remember to move through and aim your throw properly. You can even record yourself doing these drills to see how your form looks afterwards. There are plenty of things you can do to stay productive at home, so let’s stay positive and talk soon.
