Having great infielders during practice isn't enough to help us win games – we need those players to play great under pressure and this drill really helps with that!
Learn a great drill called the Around the World drill to help your infielders learn to handle pressure.
The Around the World drill centers around your infielders, but you could certainly create an outfielder version of it. Start by having your infielders grab their gloves and go out to their positions. Make sure you also include a pitcher and catcher in this drill. You'll need somebody hitting groundballs which can either be yourself, another coach or one of your players.
