This drill is designed to improve a catchers blocking skills as well as over all catching mechanics.
While in full catching gear have the catcher face a wall and stand about 5 to 6 feet from it.
Have the coach or another player stand behind the catcher
The coach or player will throw softballs, tennis balls, or any other balls that you prefer against the wall
As soon as the ball hits the wall the catcher will move to where the ball is and drop to his/her knees to block the ball from getting past him/her. (Glove is optional, but if the catcher catches the ball then make sure that it is with his/her glove hand)
