TBB Essential Drills Series #3 – Jen Schro Catching Army

 

Shoutout to my buddy Blake Paul for sharing this with me! ¬†Here’s a cool quick clip from softball player Jen Schroeder showing an easy fundamental drill for catchers. ¬†Emphasizing the importance of being strong in the stance, tracking the pitch, framing it, blocking it, etc., WITHOUT EVEN THROWING A SINGLE BALL, Jen is able to demonstrate how to teach and instill key elements of the position in a short period of time.

This example also goes to show how drills and activities need to be simplified to allow players to focus on consistent execution without having to memorize a complex set of instructions.
