Make the throws easy for the pitcher

“Seriously?  You can’t make an accurate 50 foot throw to the pitcher?”

I’ve never actually said that to a catcher … but I’ve darn well thought it!  And don’t lie.  I know you have too.

As a coach, the last thing you want to be concerned about is will your catcher make good throws back to the pitcher after each pitch.  You have too many more important things to do.  The throw needs to be good.  Period.

But how many of us actually have catchers work on this very basic skill?  Not many.

Today’s video tip explains the importance of all this and shows where the throws need to be.  Everytime.
