Tracking Baseballs While Carrying Footballs


In a new twist to the same old spring training drill of tracking fly balls, Our Washington Nationals new 3rd Base Coach Bo Porter had all his outfielders carrying a football in their glove-free hand while chasing pop ups this morning. According to Outfield Instructor Tony Tarasco, Porter implemented the drill in order to get every player to run full out toward every fly ball.  Bo feels by keeping your body tucked while running with the football an athlete will not lose speed due to flailing body parts.

Interesting idea.
