Favorite spring training drills

I know that by now that most of the drills have subsided and have given way to warm-ups and pregame rituals, but I was hoping  that some of you down at ST have seen some great drills that I can steal and use on the next generation of  Braves (13-14 year olds).  My main motivation is to get an efficient and meaningful practice put together for the team I am coaching, but thinking about this also had me reminiscing about all my favorites growing up.  If you'd like to look at what I've got so far, I've started a Google doc with a few examples. Please add your own and maybe we can make this a good resource for anyone else who is looking for drills for their kids or players.  I will continue to add to the list and look for links to videos, etc.  This is not really a drill, but my absolute favorite was at Upper Deck (Riverdale) batting cages.  They used to hang metal signs on the back net (about 3 feet circle, 100 ft. away that they would give a free round if you hit them.  I realize some drills are better depending on the perspective.  For example, as a coach, I think hitting off a tee is one of the best ways to improve hitting.  But I doubt many players would list it as a favorite.  Also, some are just alot more fun to watch.  For some reason, watching pitchers warming up with softballs always makes me laugh. 

What are everyone's favorites as a coach, a player, or a fan?
