Youth Fielding Drills an integral part of teaching the defensive position. Of course, there are sets of baseball fielding drills that are unique to each of the nine fielding positions in the game of baseball. However, there are baseball drills common to all fielding positions. One of the key youth baseball drills in catching ground balls is to keep the fingers of the fielding glove on the ground for ground balls, and raising the glove to catch the ball on the bounce, instead of lowering the glove. Another one of the instructional keys to fielding is to catch the thrown or batted ball with the wrist in an upward position for balls at or above the waist, and to turn the wrist upside down to catch balls below the waist. There are many ways to take a single drill and apply it so the whole team can practice at once.
If you have successfully thrown a strike or got the batter to commit to swinging, then you will have entered the best count for a pitcher. The 0-2 count every pitchers favorite count because they can practically toy with the opposing batter. Keep in mind, the batter also has some strategies for this particular pitch count. Typically, batters will crowd the plate and will choke up on the bat because they are either trying to get hit by the pitch or just trying to make some form of contact. However, this also works to your advantage because the hitter will also be more aggressive in this situation.
