Overhead/Deep Fly Balls & Running Down/Tracking Drill

EXECUTION


  • Set the R2 (Atec Secondary Logo) at home plate and angle to delivery fly balls to all fields.
  • Stack your outfield with all available players (Y) and place them in rotation to receive the play.
  • Shoot deep fly balls by adjusting the speed and angle of the machine directly over the heads of the outfielder.
  • Position outfielders at shallow depth in the outfield to allow players to run back for the baseball over their head.
  • Communication is key on balls that are in between both fielders.
