Backing Up The Throw – Catching Drills –

Sponsored By

Fastpitch Drills

This drill is great for working on plays that often occur in games as well as building a catchers value and skills in the sport.

When there are no runners on base and the play is being made at home plate the catcher should always be ready to back up the throw to 1st base.

As soon as the hit is made the catcher should judge where the ball will be stopped and if that ball is going to be thrown to first base then the catcher should flip off her mask and head over to first base just in the case that a wild throw is made.

Too often do teams get an extra base from wild throws.

The catcher should always make backing up throws to 1st base a habit in those situations.
