It’s not easy learning baseball. But it’s much easier for young kids to learn the game if they have a lot of fun while they do it.

That’s why these 10 beginner baseball drills for kids are so great. Each game helps a beginning player learn the basics of baseball — from catching and throwing the ball, to hitting the ball and running the bases — and helps them understand why they want to play in the first place. Coaches, it’s OK to modify these games to help little kids feel more successful. Try a bigger (or softer) ball, use a larger target or shorten the distance until they’re ready for more.
