Overview

Help your team score more runs! In Offensive Baseball Drills, Rod Delmonico, Baseball America's 1995 NCAA Division I College Coach of the Year, shows you 68 offensive drills he uses to take his teams to the top.

These drills help players develop important offensive skills, like maintaining proper body and bat control, hitting to the opposite field with a runner on first, deciding when to take the extra base, and many more.

The book includes drills that coaches can use in practice and athletes can use to practice on their own, including:

- 35 hitting drills,
- 20 baserunning drills, and
- 13 team drills.

Each drill features a full-page explanation of the drill's purpose, equipment needs, and proper procedures as well as coaching points. And the facing page has either a photo that shows the key skill in the drill being performed correctly or a diagram of the field that shows how to set up and conduct the drill.

In the last section are the five keys to using drills effectively and information on how to incorporate them into practice. The section also includes sample practice plans for youth, intermediate, and advanced players.

Offensive Baseball Drills will help your team develop solid hitting, bunting, stealing, and running skills and score more runs in every game.
