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!

A challenge many coaches face is spending much of their practice time indoors due to weather, while the game of baseball is played outdoors. In this video, Jack Dahm shows you how to make the most of your indoor batting practice!

Coach Dahm begins with basic hitting fundamentals and progresses into a challenging mixed batting practice with multiple machines that incorporate useful technology.

Daily Tee Progressions & Moving Ball Drills

Create a fundamentally sound swing by perfecting basic mechanics off the tee. With more pitchers throwing 4-seam fastballs up in the zone, it's important to learn how to handle velocity at the top of the zone with high tee drills. Dahm's tee drills will prepare your hitters for everything opposing pitchers can throw at you!

Next, you'll see how to make your drills progressively more difficult by incorporating a moving ball. Coach Dahm shows how you can add variation to your batting practice by throwing pitches from offset angles and using different kinds of bats to keep your hitters on their toes.

Batting Practice

Whether a live pitcher or a pitching machine is throwing the baseball, batting practice is a staple of preparing hitters for game day. You'll learn how to use a BP pitcher or multiple pitching machines to help your hitters prepare for different types of pitches. Additionally, you will see how Coach Dahm uses HitTrax technology to help his hitters see where their hits would be going on a simulated field as they hit in the batting cage.

This video from Coach Dahm will show you how to incorporate multiple drills in

with Steve Smith,
Auburn University Assistant Baseball Coach;

Pitching is arguably the most important element of a baseball game. A team with strong pitching often dominates, or at the very least puts little pressure on their own team's offense, because they only have to score a few runs to win a game.

Auburn's Steve Smith unloads many of the drills he uses to develop quality pitchers in this instructional video. You'll see how to use a core velocity belt to develop stability, get bullpen drills to further develop your pitchers, and view movement and strength drills that help pitchers become more athletic.

Core Velocity Belt and Stability Drills

Balance and stability are important to all positions in baseball, but they are crucial to becoming a top notch pitcher. Learn four drills using a core velocity belt to help develop and improve balance and stability. Coach Smith also offers six other drills that will help pitchers learn to convert stability into power.

Bullpen Drills

Smith serves up a variety of bullpen drills that will help you find cues that work for each of your pitchers. Additionally, you'll get exercises to help pitcher defend their position better and improve their mental game.

You will see Coach Smith's `Green Light, Yellow Light, Red Light Routine Drill' in which pitchers practice their reactions and routines in various stressful situations. As having command of one's 'mental game' is so critical in pitching, these are some things your pitchers can look at doing every day of practice.

Movement and Strength Drills

Helping pitchers move better will help them pitch better. You will learn a seven-cone zig zag drill for mobility and body control. Next, step inside the weight room and see one of Smith's pitchers go through a full body workout. Strength training is important to not only help pitchers become more powerful, but also help them stay healthy as their bodies become stronger.

Smith shares a total of 27 drills that he uses to develop his pitchers. Better athletes = better pitchers, and this video will show you how to develop great athletes on the mound!
