FIELDING: READY FOR ANYTHING DRILL Have someone to throw the ball and to catch. First you form a line about 30 to 40 feet away from the person that is throwing the ball. Tell the players just to charge the ball. Also tell them that they could expect almost anything. Grounder, Pop Fly, or a line drive right to them. Anything. It teaches them to be ready for anything. And to always charge the ball.
