How To Draw A Baseball Player Hitting A Ball Worksheet

How to draw a baseball player hitting a ball is a very simple approach to drawing a human figure in a dramatic pose. It can be mastered with a little practice and will give the young artist confidence in drawing. Parents teachers and homeschool families will find many ways to include this in class and home.

Parents and teachers will be able to use this in class or at home.
  • It can be a lesson by itself.
  • It can be an art lesson handout.
  • It can be an extra activity to fill in the time.
  • It can be given as a take-home project.
  • Print this and with others to take with the family to occupy the kids when they are bored.
FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawings do not come out the way you hoped do not give up just keep on drawing because learning to draw takes time and practice. So draw every day. Come back and try a few other projects and soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

The free printable worksheet below may be printed by highlighting it and sending it to your printer or saving to your device to print later. Some printers work better if you drag the image to your desktop and print from there. Sometimes it is better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Doc and print the document like you would normally. If you have problems see the how to print tab above for some suggestions, or try one of the updated files below.

Draw a line for the ground so the feet connect with the ground.
Start with an articulated stick figure; that is a stick figure with elbows, knees, hips, and shoulders. Draw dots for the elbows and knees hips and shoulders.
     * The far shoulder goes up, so draw it high, and the far elbow is high.
     * The near shoulder is low, and the near elbow is very low.
     * The head is very low and a little forward.
     *The near hip is high and the far hip is low.
     * The the near knee is almost straight down. The near lower leg goes far back.
     * The far knee and leg are as far forward as possible but a little bent at the knee.
Make sure the feet connect to the ground the back foot is on its toe the front foot is pointing.

Draw around the stick figure to make the body thick and the arms and legs muscular.

The face is hidden in part by the helmet, the helmet covers half of the head.  Keep the face simple. The mouth is just a dash.  The eye is a dash. The nose is the letter "L" at an angle.

The thumb on the near hand is on top and the fingers disappear under the bat. The thumb on the far hand is under the bat and only the top of the hand is showing.

Draw the clothes last. Put a shadow under him. Use shading to give him roundness.

These are free to print but your small gift will help me keep this blog going.
