Drill of the Week: Panther BP 

Please try not to take BP on the field with one player hitting and everyone else shagging. It is boring for 90% of your team at a time. Instead try Panther BP. I got this drill from Clemson, who called it Tiger BP. They borrowed it from a JUCO in Iowa who called it Reiver BP.   

 This is a great drill to do when you co practice with another team. 18 players is a great number to have. 

  • Split your group in half 

  • You put a player at each position in the field 

  • The other half put 2 at each base and 2 at the plate 

  • One hits and the other practices being on deck and timing the pitcher 

  • Each hitter gets five pitches 

  • The first one is live 

  • The fielders and runners play it live 

  • The hitter does not run it out 

  • The next pitch is dead 

  • Then live 

  • Then dead 

  • The fifth and final pitch is live and the hitter runs it out 

 This will keep all players engaged and give them live reps (instead of shagging). It will get your hitters 5 swings (instead of 1 for a scrimmage).   

 You can adjust if you only have 12 players. 

  • Split into 3 groups of 4 

  • Put 2 groups in the field and one group in the bases 

  • Put the runners at 1B (or as you do it more 2B) and this will force players to get live looks at different scenarios
