"Fielding Drill #2: Hit the Cutoff.
The main purpose of this drill is to work on getting the ball from the outfield into the infield.
How it Works:
This drill requires a fielder at second, at third, a catcher, a cutoff man, and outfielders.
The coach will begin the drill by hitting the ball (in the air or on the ground) to the outfielder. The outfielder will field the ball and throw the ball on a line to the cutoff man (the ball should be aimed at the cutoff’s head). The cutoff should go out to the outfield grass and line-up between home and the outfielder."
