Infield Fly Balls

DRILL BENEFITS


Just like ground balls, infield pop flies need to be practiced repeatedly to ensure out are made when it counts. The problem with hitting pop flies with a fungo is lack of accuracy and consistency. The ATEC R2 delivers a full range of fly balls quickly with remarkable accuracy and effienciency, speeding up the amount of time needed for this drill.

EXECUTION


  • Set the ATEC R2 machine (Atec Secondary Logo) behind home plate with infielders positioned in their normal positions.
  • Using real baseballs, adjust R2 to deliver a variety of infield fly balls. Elevation and speed adjustments can be made to alter the difficulty from a “can of corn” to a "texas leaguer."
  • Strategically pick the location of fly balls, working the line, gaps and foul ball territory.
  • Add in outfielders to create infield/outfield communication and ball priority - I got it - Drill.
