Mass Infield vs Traditional Infield/Outfield
PISTV – VLOG – 19 – Mass Infield vs Traditional Infield/Outfield
This is the 2nd VLOG in a row talking about pregame. This time I’m talking about the actual mechanics of Infield/Outfield.
The overwhelming majority of teams run the “traditional” version of I/O where 1 coach hits 1 ball to 1 player at a time. Some teams run “mass” infield. Mass I/O is all about high number of reps in a short amount of time. A player might take 6 ground balls the traditional way vs 40 during mass.
This video explores why some teams might choose one vs the other during their 10-15 minute pregame infield/outfield.
There is no “right” way or wrong way. But as a former “anti mass I/O” guy, I’d say I see a whole lot of reasons to incorporate mass infield into the normal pregame routine.
I have just put together a FREE College Recruiting Presentation. It covers actionable tactics that any family going to through the recruiting process could benefit from.
