CATCHING NOTES

  • Drive glove to right shoulder in exchange (last throw on the behind camera angle is where you want to be); make the exchange with the throwing hand on top of the ball and elbow near the same level as the ball

  • 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
