June 29th Transfers, Receiving (CB), Pop-ups

We encouraged the catchers to apply the back-pick from their knees, which was an area of instruction.

One of our catchers sent me this article and we wanted to share it with you.  Please read and share it with your catchers.  It is well written and we are glad that people are beginning to realize how vast the impact a catcher can make in a game.  There is no other skill that needs to be implemented in a game more than receiving.   It’s the small details, that make a big difference.
