Instead, really focus on swing consistency and repetition to help increase the speed you bring it through the zone. Even a slight increase in overall speed (think just 2 to 5 miles per hour increase) can give you up to 40 feet extra distance, and a ton more velocity when you square one up.
You can find many youth baseball drills on the Internet covering hitting, fielding and throwing.Some drills are free and some require subscription or for you to order a DVD.Free baseball drills allow you greater flexibility in trying a variety and see what works best for you as the coach and your youth baseball team. Always remember that drills should be age appropriate. The right fielding drill for a 14 year-old boy will not suit and 8-year old and vice versa. There are many baseball coaching resources and communities like Weplay available to help with any questions you might have. Dont underestimate the passion of the community around you. We are all here to help the kids.
What size do I need? Baseball gloves come in many different sizes made to fit different ages, positions and games (softball gloves). For adults in baseball most outfielders use 12” to 13” whereas infielders and pitchers use 10 ” to 12”. Softball players usually use 12” to 14” accommodate the larger ball. Care should be taken when choosing a glove for a youth player. Youths range from 9” to 11”. 8 year olds can often use 11” based on their size. Many teenagers may fit into 12”.
