Hey Crazy, What is a Flip Drill???

So I was going for a run this morning and I passed by a baseball damond and there was a sign that said:

"NO FLIP DRILLS INTO FENCE" What the hell is a flip drill?? IS that whern you jump, dive and flip over the fence ot catch a foul ball....or does thsi refer to climbing and flipping over the fence???

Well, I'm not Brian, but I may have the answer for ya. It's also called soft toss. Basically a person flips a ball to someone with a bat and they hit the ball into the fence. It can cause some nice damage to a fence.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

I couldn't figure out why you asked me this but I seem to remember a conversation we had about me being into baseball a maybe downtow at Hooters last year.

Anyway flip drill is pretty much what terminator said. My dad put a net in his garage so he could do it with me all year round. It builds the reflexes and really gives you a workout. One person kneels on the ground perpendicular to the batter with a bucket of balls. He tosses balls toward the batter mixing up speeds and points in the strike zone. They actually kneel pretty close so when the they toss you only have a split second to adjust to what point and speed he tossed to you. They'll toss high and inside, high and outside, inside, outside, low inside, low outside and all your in betweeners. Great drill but yeah can really stretch out bubbles in a chain link.
