COLORED BALL




Paint several baseballs with different bright colors (solids, of course) and place in a bucket behind mound. Have assistant place ball in glove of pitching coach (ball hidden from batter). Pitcher checks color of ball then calls out any color or the actual color of ball in glove. The batter can only swing at the ball that matches the color the coach called out, and if the pitch is in the hitting zone.

Variation-

Soft toss two balls at once. Just before tossing, coach tells batter which color to hit.

If you only have white baseballs - tell batter to hit top or bottom ball.
