Holthaus

NOTES

  • Good release

  • Get feet moving earlier, stay low

  • Get chest over left knee at release

Wood

NOTES

  • Drive glove to right shoulder in exchange (last throw on the behind camera angle is where you want to be)

  • Think short footwork - long stride causes throwing arm to lag behind body. When that happens we fight ourselves and ball tails toward 1B.

  • Stay on top of ball on release and finish chest over left knee

  • Let ball get to you when receiving and start footwork while catching ball closer to body.

  • Try not to recoil after finish - unnecessary stress on the arm
