In this collection of drills from Iowa Western Head Coach Marc Rardin, you'll learn to train your players to become better hitters and fielders

Coach Rardin shares drills to help you read the pitcher while you have a leadoff on first base. Youll also learn how to make reads on balls hit to the shortstop when you're the base runner on second. Finally, you'll get various drills that give players reps at the plate while the rest get game-like experience in the field.

In the "Total Team Relay Drill," your players learn all aspects of the game. Create scenarios with runners on certain bases and teach your players what to do if a ball is hit to the outfield. Coach Rardin provides an example of a ground ball hit to the outfield with a runner on second. The outfielder uses good fundamentals by fielding through the ball and hitting the cutoff man on the way to home plate.

Coach Rardin's emphasis on fundamentals and teaching players all aspects of the game are key reasons his teams are so successful. His offensive and defensive drills reflect those values and are a valuable asset to any coach's library.
