SKILLS & DRILLS (hour each) - 4/2/21, 1-4PM
A catcher uses three Stances in each game.
Each stance is different, and has a specific purpose based on a game situation.
The most important skill from the Ready Stance is BLOCKING the pitch in the dirt.
The purpose is NOT to catch the ball, but to stop and control it. Then quickly get to your feet and retrieve the ball.
The most visible and measured catcher skill is THROWING to the bases.
Catchers are graded on their PopTime to second base. Yet, the ball velocity is only half the challenge.
