CROSSBAR PITCHING DRILL – CAN YOU HIT A TARGET CONSISTENTLY? – The crossbar pitching drill was is designed to help with accuracy. Have pitchers pick a point about 60 feet from themselves and pitch to it rapidly, seeing how many times they can hit the object. This is called a crossbar drill because it works well with the crossbar of a soccer goal.

This drill should encourage speed and accuracy. Pitchers should be required to hit the object a certain number of times before stopping, or before they miss. For example, a drill could require that pitchers hit their object 15 times before they miss 3 times. If they cannot make their requirement, the count starts over.
