Let’s face it. We all love spending time scrolling through Instagram. We can connect with others, see beautiful pictures, and watch funny videos. A wealth of softball knowledge and information awaits discovery as well!

Here's our list of the best Instagram accounts to follow for the softball lovers out there.

1. The Packaged Deal

 

The Packaged Deal clinics could possibly be the best softball clinic experience your daughter could ever attend. The founders, four big-time former softball players, all came together to create an electric atmosphere at clinics around the country. Their Instagram is chock full of drills, pictures of the clinics, and tons of encouragement for young players.

 

2. The Hitting Vault

 

Matt Lisle, the founder of The Hitting Vault, is one of the most well-known hitting coaches (both baseball and softball) in the country. From doing private lessons, to coaching both collegiate softball and baseball, to being a hitting consultant to major league players, Lisle provides great insight to the hitting swing.

Reasons why I love the bucket drill • its a great drill for working on leg drive, which is so important for getting an explosive push off the rubber • it helps the pitcher work on core and hip strength because you have to work extra hard to get vertically stacked and land tall • it helps increase the length of the stride • girls love it because they can literally feel themselves getting more power • all you need is a bucket! But if you don’t have a bucket you can use a chair . . It’s definitely a favourite, that being said though, it is an advanced drill, so you should only do it if your mechanics are pretty solid . . Train with us at Fastpitchpower.com!

How big are your dreams? Do you find yourself unable to stop designing ideas in your head? Do you engineer thoughts that most view as impossible? Have you been told: “You’re Crazy!”? I have. Do people call you “ridiculous!”? All the time. That’s when the real fun starts. . Today, I’m one month away from my FIFTH @jenschrocatching Retreat kicking off. An idea that was “crazy.” In about 35 days, a project I’ve been working on with @eastonfastpitch for years will be unveiled. A concept that some male executives would call, “ridiculous.” . The world will give you 8 thousands reasons why you shouldn’t pursue something. Good thing it only takes 1 reason to know you should. . To every catcher in the world: I’ve got your back. To all you dreamers: Don’t stop. To everyone reading this: When you need someone to believe in your ideas, I’m here. . . . . #dream #dreamer #dreamers #dreaming #believe #ownthefield #ownthisfield #selfbelief #belief #ibelieve #shebelieves #webelieve #crazydreams #crazydreamer #dreambig #dreambigger
