Purpose: To practice slip catching concentration under a pressure situation. And to have a fun game.
Description: The coach hits the ball out randomly to players in the line for close catches. Any fielder who drops the catch moves to the bottom of the ‘ladder’ (as shown on the left), everyone else moves up a place.
It's best to keep the number of catchers small (3-4) to prevent crowding, although more can play if needs be.
