Unique Perspective: Infield & Outfield Fly Ball Drills

Unique Perspective: Infield & Outfield Fly Ball Drills
Infield and Outfield Fly Balls are considered “easy outs” in the game of Baseball and Softball, and that’s why completing these plays for outs is so important. Every out in Baseball and Softball is hard to come by and a single error can cost you a game. There’s no reason to not be prepared for Infield and Outfield Fly Balls with the simple yet effective drills that can be practiced with an ATEC Pitching Machine. ATEC Machines, such as the M1 Pitching Machine, are easy to transport and can be taken on the road to drill before away games. Infield Fly ball DrillJust like any other skill, Infield Fly ball need to be practiced with as many repetitions as possible to ensure this situation does in fact become an easy out. Working with a Fungo Bat, such as our Accubat or Skybat is great but the machine provides those additional reps and the accuracy needed at the highest levels. The ATEC M1 Pitching Machine offers a variety of different fly ball options with adjustability to the...

Unique Perspective: Relay & Cut Off Drills

Unique Perspective: Relay & Cut Off Drills
With the new ATEC M1 Pitching Machine, working on cut-offs and relays has never been easier. A common drill used by college baseball coaches, but can be used at almost any level, involves placing the machine in left center field to simulate a situation with runners on the bases, and throwing the ball back to the infielders. Simply create a rotation with players acting as a cutoff man at 3rd, relaying the ball to home or the base of your choice and advancing to the next position at that base. With this drill, you can include almost any and every player on the team and build on the communication and chemistry of the team with coordinated play. Coaches can provide simulated throws from the outfield with the ATEC M1 Pitching Machine and create different situations that a team must work together and communicate on to get the ball from the cutoff man to the correct base. On an individual level, coaches want to emphasize catching the ball with two hands and exchanging it quickly...

Unique Perspective: Infield Grounder Drills

Unique Perspective: Infield Grounder Drills
The label of “routine ground ball” suggests that it’s an easy out, but we see errors at every level in this situation, from little league to the World Series - It’s behind the bag! We understand errors happen, but for any skill to become routine, it takes practice and repetition to create confidence in players. With the help of a pitching machine, such as the ATEC M3, you can replicate a topspin hop to infielders and create realistic groundball training. The topspin created by the machine makes infielders get their butts down and hands out in front fast. Small adjustments to the speed controls (wheel speed) on the machine will create different hops that replicate different hits and game situations. Infield drills with the ATEC M3 allow you to not only work on the fundamentals of an infield ground ball, but also these game situations and different scenarios. It’s the most efficient way for a coach to train infielders today! If you have access to a baseball or softball...

Unique Perspective: Bunting Drills

Unique Perspective: Bunting Drills
The bunt is a lost art in baseball and a skill that should be practiced and used by all players. With the help of a Pitching Machine, such as the new ATEC M2 Baseball Pitching Machine, coaching a player to learn to bunt becomes easier with far more efficient drills and practice. As stated, to become a complete hitter it is essential that batters know how to bunt the ball precisely for that game situation when and where it’s needed. The following drill, used by collegiate coaches such as Tim Corbin, allows for a high volume of pitches to be delivered in a short amount of time. This ensures that batters can become comfortable with the skill of bunting and more accurate in their placement of a bunt.  The ATEC M2 Baseball Pitching Machine, new for 2015/2016, is ideal for bunting drills because it delivers a quick game-like pitch with accuracy, exactly where the coach wants to place it. Pitches can be easily altered with the ATEC M2 Pitching Machine, allowing coaches to work...

Unique Perspective: Fungo Bat

Unique Perspective: Fungo Bat
At Unique Sports, we not only sell sports equipment, we use it. With a mix of athletes and coaches at our company, we often find ourselves in the same position as many of our customers - shopping for the latest sports equipment that will make us better at our sports or as coaches, sometimes make our lives easier. When it comes to fielding practice, the use of a baseball bat can often become awkward and come up short on distance and accuracy for most coaches hitting to players. The development of the fungo bat was to fix this very problem with a coaches practice bat that featured a skinnier, lighter frame for higher accuracy and more repetitions when the ball is tossed in the air compared to the control of a regular bat. Unfortunately, the problem with accuracy and simply making contact with a fungo bat often persists. The solution, The Coaches Helper from Accubat Sports. The Accubat is not the latest or most advanced item we offer in terms of technology, but it is one...
