Wall Ball

Throw a ball against a hard surface with a target on it. Try to hit the target.


When the ball bounces back off the wall, get into an infield ground ball fielding position and catch it. Then shift feet for next throw.


Remember, "Aim small, miss small" meaning that players should be taught to always zero in on a small target. Don't throw to the first baseman, throw to the first baseman's chest or even pick a letter on the shirt.

Invite a friend and have a competition to see who can get the most points for hitting the smallest target. Always aim to make practice fun and your Champ will practice more and improve his skills!
