Join the action, make the jump and better your game.
Highlights and additional info is below.
Here is a quick tutorial on creating the best secondary stance for you and maximizing your explosiveness to make plays.
Here is another amazing play that Vogt makes, throwing out would be base-stealer Howie Kendrick (who had an amazing jump). The pre-pitch, feet, transfer and quick release….Its all there.
This play was clocked between a 1.77 and a 1.81. Just another reason why Stephen Vogt is our favorite MLB catcher. It was so good to see him on their trip to Anaheim.
He makes this play look easy due to his dedication and the mind-set that drives him to always get better. It’s all about learning and implementing efficiency into the craft of catching.
A quick lesson in Receiving. It is a skill to be developed. Will you put the time in? Do you know how to put the proper training in? Work-ethic is learned behavior. The skill development and feel is the part that NLCA provides for catchers.
