The purpose of this drill is to improve reaction time and thinking at the plate. Paint several softballs with different bright colors, and place them in a bucket behind the mound. Have someone place one of the balls in the pitcher's glove without letting the batter see the color. The pitcher then calls out a color before pitching the ball. The batter can only swing if the ball matches the color the pitcher called out (and if the pitch is in the strike zone).
Step 1: Materials
Paintbrush, Paint, Spray Paint, Softballs
Step 3: Let the Softballs Dry
Step 5: As a Pitcher, Select a Colored Ball With Out Letting the Batter See.
Step 6: Tell the Batter to Only Hit a Certian Color, the Color May Not Be the Color the Pitcher Selected.
Step 7: The Batter Should Only Hit the Color Ball That the Pitcher Told Them To, If It Is Not That Color, Take a Pitch (don't Swing).
