CATCHING NOTES

  • Drive glove to hand on exchange and travel to throwing shoulder

  • Work on grip - use three fingers - thumb, index and middle fingers. More fingers = more friction = less velo

  • Good footwork and forward momentum, stayed short with feet

  • Get head and chest toward 2B - think straight line to 2B with the upper body

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