Patty Gasso opens up her softball drill library and delivers 24 fast and
challenging drills that will stretch your team defense. These infield and
outfield drills are designed to improve players' fielding skills, range,
footwork and conditioning.
WARM UP DRILLS
In this working warm up, Gasso demonstrates a five drill warm up circuit.
Before taking the field, she demonstrates drills that include a weighted glove
reaction drill, slide board leg work, and several wall ball drills.
On the field, Gasso demonstrates two team warm up drills: Around the World
and Touch & Go. Around the World doubles as a warm up and conditioning
drill for both infielders and outfielders. The Touch & Go drill works on
creating athleticism and maximizing the players' range.
These drills will energize your team and set the tone for practice.
Gasso runs her players through eight Infield Drills. These multifaceted drills
work players all around the infield focusing on range, glove work, footwork,
short hops, sliding with the throw, throwing on the run and more.
The Outfield Drills include nine drills that work on becoming efficient in the
outfield. These drills fine-tune all ares of outfield defense, including
footwork, fielding ground balls with the forehand and backhand, throwing to
bases, hitting relays and recovering from bad throws, playing the ball off the
wall, taking good angles to the ball and going hard to get the out in foul
