This baseball throwing to a target drill promotes correct arm motion. It is performed with both the hand and elbow pointing to the target. The front elbow is kept pointed at the target as the thrower extends his body toward the target. The hand and wrist face away from the target on the arm back swing. This teaches the fielder to concentrate more and release the ball with the correct amount of force.
To perform this drill, players stand around 20 feet from the target and assume a power position while throwing the ball. They then alternate throwing, each attempting to knock the ball off the tee. If the throw hits the tee, they call another shot and continue the rotation. Once all players have completed the exercise, the next player takes the turn. If there are several pitchers, each pitcher should take a turn and continue the practice.
This drill promotes the proper arm motion by having players set their hands on the target. The arm should be raised to shoulder level and should point directly at the target. This drill also teaches the correct technique by using the thumb under the target and the fingers on the top. The wrist should face away from the target, thereby strengthening the wrist. The players should practice this throw regularly to improve their technique. They should also follow through on the throw.
