Have your child stand 5 feet away from you and play catch with a tennis ball and no glove. The goal of this drill is to build your child’s confidence. Too many people try to play catch from too far of a distance right away. Starting too far away from each other is counterproductive because kids are often afraid of failure and getting hit in the face with the ball. Once playing catch with the tennis ball is mastered, then add a glove. Start moving away from one another and add in a real baseball.
