Individual and Team Defense
Hibbs shows how to set up your field to run multiple drills at the same time. Maximize your time and space by having different groups of infielders working drills with the pitchers, while other groups work with the catchers and the outfield. Get more done in less time!
Next, Hibbs shows how to bring your whole team together to cover defensive situations that require great communication and teamwork. He shows bunt defense within the video, but explains that he can plug in any number of drills to this part of practice, including fly ball communication, cuts and relays, or game situations.
Batting practice is a staple of most team practices. Coach Hibbs gives you the rounds he uses with his batters to develop hitters who can drive the ball to the whole field. Additionally, he explains why hitters should execute different types of bunts during their rounds since this unique skill will eventually be needed in a tight contest when the fate of the game is on the line. At the same time that your offense is getting reps in the cage, your defense can work on live balls off the bat, which is vital to develop good defenders.
