with Eugene Lenti, DePaul University Head Coach; Coach Lenti ranks 10th all-time among DI coaches with 83 wins, and is a 2008 inductee to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Before hitting the field for practice, Coach Lenti lets players know that practice is done at game speed. In this clinic-setting presentation, Lenti begins with the proper throwing grip as well as correct fielding technique and footwork. From there he moves into special tosses and flips, including backhand flips and the underhand toss. Lenti believes that situations must be worked on each day - he includes the pitchers' technique to execute a 1-2-3 double play. Lenti demonstrates a number of his favorite drills to use during practice. He also talks about the importance of the mental side of the game to good defensive teams.
