Throughout the week, at Piedmont Little League, players work on each area of baseball. All players go through a morning and afternoon stretching and throwing programs. The emphasis is on taking proper care of the body through efficient warm-ups and perfect throwing mechanics.
Fielding drills and instruction cover stance, positioning, footwork, anticipation and reaction, ground balls and fly balls, backhands, double plays, rundowns, bag coverage, communication, and game situations and more.
Baserunning instruction includes improving quickness and speed with proper running technique, getting out of the box, leadoffs, stealing, reading the pitcher, rounding bases, sliding, and game situations.
Throwing instruction will work to improve on correct throwing technique to maximize the fundamentals and utilize each players maximum potential with their given arm strength.
Hitters will rotate through our popular 4 step process of hitting. Each player will learn stance, stride separation(load), and approach to contact with both the lower half and the hands.
Players will work off tee, soft toss, and short toss in various drills emphasizing proper fundamentals in our approach to hitting. Hitters will also have chalk talk to help them understand pitch recognition and the basic plate approach to maximize each at bat.
