Short Hop Drill
Grab a partner and stand 40 feet apart
One partner will throw short hops so the ball is hitting within three feet of the other partner. Do twenty then switch
When you're fielding, concentrate on having your hands out in front of you and accepting the ball with soft hands using your top hand as well.
Field the ball then use good footwork and make the throw back to your partner who will be presenting a target.
Once you master the short hop in front, work on moving the ball around using your backhand and forward hand.
