T-ball Coaching Tips - Three Coaching Points for Correct Fielding
Good Morning. This morning, I want to mention 3 coaching points for teaching the very youngest of players how to field a ground ball. The three points are:
1. Charge the Ball - Young players must be taught to be agressive and to charge all balls except the hard hit ball that gets on them quickly. If they lay back and do not charge the ball, there is a much greater chance of the runner beating the throw or the ball taking a bad hop.
2. Get the Glove Extended and Away from the Body - Too many beginners want to field the ground ball between the fee or legs. Have the players learn to field the ball at least 12 inches in front of the toes.(for very young kids)
3. Look the Ball Into The Glove - Often younger players will not look the ball into the glove. They simply look the ball 1/2 the way in and bring the eyes and head up. The player should keep the chin down and look the ball all the way in.
Hey, Gotta Go. Good Luck Til Next Time.
