Hi, I’m Bill Rogan along with Andy Cornell,
and on behalf of Expert Village — one longtime baseball drill that’s very good for the reflexes
and coordination is pepper. You don’t need a lot of room to play it, it’s a good warm
up exercise before a game. Simply the fielder will throw the ball to the batter, who hits
little line drives and ground balls, and it’s a good way to practice your fielding technique.
So Andy and I will play a game of pepper. Keep moving side to side. Ground balls, also
hit some line drives. Again, always work on your fielding technique, and if you’re hitting,
see the ball hit the bat. It’s a fun way to loosen up, especially if you’ve got four or
five guys and if you make an error you go to the end of the line. If the batter misses,
then the next guy takes over. And that is what we call pepper.
