Watch as Coach Skeeter Gentile demonstrates a game changing drill to challenge your catchers and improve their reaction time!
Purpose: To work on catchers reacting quickly and diving for the ball from a squatting position.
How it works: A coach sets up about 30 yards from the catcher. The catcher gets in a squatting position with her back to the coach. The coach tells the catcher whether to expect an inside or outside pitch, then yells "go!" As the player turns to face the coach, the catcher must quickly locate the ball and attempt to catch it however she can. After catching the ball, the player returns it to the coach. The catcher resumes her starting position and the drill repeats.
Equipment: One player, catcher gear, a glove, a coach, balls and 30 feet of space
