Action in the infield happens in the blink of an eye. Once the hitter makes contact, infielders must be quick on their feet and ready to make a play in any direction. With IMG Academy's How-To baseball infield drills video, our coaches give an overview of techniques every infielder should practice.
In this video, get introduced to three baseball infielding drills to become a better baseball player. Watch how the student-athlete performs each drill with direction on agility, footwork, and the proper setup for a powerful throw. Each of these three specific infielding drills is broken down to provide instruction on key areas that can impact your game:
Three Cone Fundamentals
Short Hop Attack
Dry Action Cone
In the Three Cone Fundamentals drill, the focus is on the pre-pitch step, breakdown in the fielding position, and footwork into first base. During the Short Hop Attack drill, the focus is on the proper footwork through the hop and realignment of the body for the throw. Lastly, the Dry Action Cone drill emphasizes proper footwork and technique for multiple types of ground balls.
