Pop Fly Fun – Baseball

Pop Fly Fun – Baseball

Activity

This is a fun game to work on catching fly balls. Getting your body in the correct position is very important when catching a ball in the outfield. Your child will need to wear a baseball helmet for this game. Start by standing 10 feet away from your child and throw a tennis ball up high in the air towards your child. Have you child move his/her feet so the ball lands on top of the helmet. Move back farther as he/she improves the footwork to get underneath the balls. Definitely use tennis balls and not baseballs to prevent concussions.

What This Works On

Things You Need

Helmet, Tennis or other soft balls

Variations

Hit or throw the balls higher and farther away from your child. Kids have fun seeing how far they can run and still have the ball land on their helmet.
