This Handbook contains our thoughts on the current state of receiving the baseball and is written from the perspective of a current professional catcher. With so much change at the catching position in recent years, we want to provide a framework for what we feel makes for a successful (and valuable) receiver in today's game. This Handbook is not a list of drills to use while training (however, it does include all of our catching drills). Instead, this Handbook covers:
- Modern receiving philosophy (i.e. what "modern" receiving is)
- Traditional and one-knee stances
- Using both types of stances for receiving success
- Targeting and
- Glove mechanics
We also discuss other things we feel are pertinent to receiving the ball, including sign giving, game calling, and receiving focused training environments. The bulk of our Catcher's Receiving Handbook focuses on setups, targeting, and glove mechanics. Whether you are a player, coach, or parent you should find this eBook to be a valuable resource with over 100 pages of actionable content. Handbook will be downloadable immediately upon purchase.
