Baseball Defensive Coaching Tip - Buy Your "Good Glove and Softer Hands"Trainer At The Toy Store...

"Soft-hands" are a must for great defensive play, particularly for the infielders. One of the commonly used tools for teaching and developing soft-hands and the use of two hands is the "paddle or hard disk" baseball training gloves.

You Can Buy Your "Good Glove and Softer Hands"Trainer At The Toy Store.

You can buy a very inexpensive yet very useful defensive trainer at most toy stores and mass merchants. Go to the store's toy section. Look for those "catch-it" toys that consist of two "dish shaped catchers" with hand-straps. They have vecro on the concave side and are used to catch a tennis ball.

This game sells for under $10 and it makes two great trainers. Have your infielders take "soft" ground balls wearing this device. It will help them develop "softer hands" and will really improve their glove skills. It teaches them not to reach and to always use two hands. It also teaches them very rapidly to move their feet and "front the ball".

Good Luck til next time, Nick Defensive Training Products
