Run an efficient infield practice while indoors and keep every player in your infield engaged and working on defensive skills!

Coach Mike Dickson shows you how to get more out of your infield practices, whether indoors or out on the field. If you have practices where your infielders stand around between reps, Dickson will show you the drills and station work you can implement right away to make your practices more efficient.

Throwing and Catch Play

Help your players fire the ball around the infield with confidence and ease after preparing using Coach Dickson's throwing progression and quick hands work. Dickson takes you through a seven-step throwing progression to help infielders get their arms loose and strong. His catch play will also get your fielders working on quick transfers to get the ball exchanged faster, leading to more converted outs.

PFP

In a typical defensive practice plan, pitchers often get forgotten or left out entirely. Coach Dickson offers three different PFP combo drills that will shine the defensive spotlight on your pitchers, helping them efficiently get in all the fielding they need to stay sharp. Seamlessly work on bunts, comebackers, and covering first base on a ball to the right hand side, or various other defensive skills that pitchers must master to help the infield make outs.

Live Ground Balls

Learn four ground ball sequences that will allow you to give your infielders a full workout. Get your players the work they need on forehands, backhands, slow rollers, and more. Coach Dickson shows how to keep all your infielders working and moving to get more done in less time.

This video featuring Coach Dickson offers a blueprint for a productive indoor infield practice. If you need ideas to make your infield practice plan better, this is a great option!

Total Pitching and Arm Care Workout: Strength, Stretching and Throwing Routines

2019 NJAC regular season champions;

2x NJCAA Division III Championships (2010, 2013);

and Kevin Gunter,
Rowan University Assistant Coach;
drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 13th round of the 2006 MLB Draft;
played collegiately at Old Dominion University

Pitching is at the center of the game of baseball. In addition to throwing quality pitches, pitchers must be able to stay healthy to contribute to the team's success. This can be difficult because of the strain that pitching places on the arm.

This video not only lets you step inside a live practice session with pitching coach Kevin Gunter - he also pulls back the curtain on the pre- and post-throw routines to keep arms healthy.

Pre-Throwing Routine

Coaches often say that pitchers should warm up to throw, not throw to warm up. Pre-throwing activation can help keep the arm healthy and help pitchers throw better overall. You'll learn the band routine Coach Gunter uses with his pitchers to keep the arm healthy and get it warmed up to pitch. He also shows a plyoball routine to activate the muscles needed to pitch.

Throwing Lead Up

After activation work, the arm will be ready to throw the baseball. Learn the throwing progression Gunter implements to help pitchers reinforce correct body sequencing and mechanics. The routine begins with a pick-pivot drill, where the pitcher pivots into a position where they throw the baseball with the throwing arm leg forward. Putting the pitcher in this awkward position helps reinforce the body's rotation and proper sequencing.

You'll also see what a live session looks like with Coach Gunter's pitchers. You'll see pitchers throwing live to batters in the batting cages and hear Gunter's words of wisdom and feedback for his pitchers.

Post-Throwing Medball Work

Finally, Gunter offers two different post-throwing medball routines to help your pitchers improve. You'll observe what a typical push day and overhead day look like in Gunter's bullpen. Medball work after throwing can help strengthen the body and reinforce correct mechanics.

This video offers 18 drills you can implement in your bullpen right away. Coach Gunter will show you how to develop pitchers who have great mechanics while keeping arms healthy.

Russ Steinhorn - Pitch Recognition and In The Box Vision Plan

Coach Steinhorn not only looks at the visual pieces necessary to hit a baseball - he also delves into the vision a coach must have for his or her career. You'll see how to help your players learn to see the ball out of the hand, but still possess the ability to adjust their swing if the pitch isn't what they thought it was. Steinhorn also teaches why hitters first must understand their damage zone, and where it is located, to be able to leverage their skills. Get your hitters to do more damage at the plate by swinging at more pitches in their damage zone!

Kenny Graham - No Limitations, Making Sense Out of Hitting Twitter

There's so much information about hitting being shared on social media, but like many parts of life, quantity does not equal quality! Coach Graham's session will teach you what to look for when navigating through information and arguments online, and how to separate the experts, who are moving the game forward, from the self-promoting gurus seeking personal gain. In the past decade especially, science and technology has moved the game of baseball forward more than one could have imagined. Graham puts that in perspective and explains that the foundation of the game hasn't changed, but how things are measured, evaluated and taught has evolved greatly. You will learn how to use that new data and incorporate it without becoming a slave to numbers.

Creative Drills for Developing Flawless Infielders

former Creighton University Head Coach;
2x Missouri Valley Coach of the Year (1999, 2002);
back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 1999 & 2000;

In many places, baseball season begins during some of the coldest months of the year. Inches of snow, frigid cold and non-stop rainy days prevent even the most dedicated baseball players from getting onto the field.

This video featuring Jack Dahm will show you how to develop and prepare infielders indoors, efficiently utilizing limited space and resources to get them ready to perform outside.

Dailies + Indoor Drills

Save practice time and get your infielders into a daily routine by assigning them fundamental drills they will complete every day. Coach Dahm's ladder drills will help your infielders improve their foot speed and flexibility. Additionally, athletes will develop good hands by running through barehanded and small glove drills.

Dahm offers an assortment of indoor drills to help develop complete infielders. You'll see how to practice recovering from a bobbled ball to reduce panic and still get an out. Coach Dahm also shows how you can improve your fielders' range by working on drop steps and taking good angles to the ball.

Outdoor Drills

Next, Coach Dahm shows a throwing progression to help your infielders improve arm strength and accuracy if you're able to practice outside. You'll also see how to get more accomplished in the same amount of time by having the receiver of the throws accomplish tasks like double play footwork or relay mechanics. Dahm concludes by revealing a quick infield routine to work on any type of ball an infielder might encounter.

This video will show you many drills that your team can use indoors or outdoors to give infielders a complete workout. When the weather turns colder and your team is forced to practice indoors, Coach Dahm shows how to keep your infield defense hot!
