T-Ball Drill, One Bounce, Two Bounce!
This is a great drill on a blacktop when a field is not readily available or just for fun. It can also be done in some driveways or in the backyard against a house or even in the inner city. A coach will throw a tennis ball against a wall and yell out a number of bounces the tennis ball must take before the player can catch it. If the coach yells out, “One bounce,” the player must catch the ball after only one bounce. In these cases, he must rush in to make the catch. If the coach says, “Three bounces,” the player should backpedal, allowing for the tennis ball to bounce three times before making the catch.
