Too often we see little leaguer’s not taking the correct approach to “getting ready” for fielding.
These are my four most important!
- Their body is not in the correct stance for a quick reaction.
- They get “set” too soon, before the ball is pitched
- The don’t move after each pitch ( they stay frozen).
- They don’t think about “what do I do, if it’s hit to me”
All of these factors can cause multiple problems….
Limited range and poor decision making skills, when the ball is actually hit to them. These are the most important skills an infielder must posses.
