THE BOUNCE




This is used to develop the outfielders ablitiy to throw low and put the correct backspin on the ball and to throw overhand.

Procedure: The outfielders can pair-off and face each other about 100-125 feet apart. Each pair has ball to bounce back and forth to each other to see who can get the longest bounce. Remember to have them check their throws, if the ball goes left or right after the bounce, they are not throwing overhand or keeping their fingers on top of the ball. They want to achieve backspin on the ball.

As they develop, they can gradually move out to about 175-200 feet.
