Infield Fly Balls
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.
- Set the ATEC R2 machine () 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.
