Fastpitch Drills

This drill is an effective way to get your catcher used to catching pop up's behind the plate.

Begin with the catcher in a crouched position behind the plate.

The coach will use a tennis racket and a tennis ball and hit one straight in the air and give the command to find and catch the ball.

The tennis balls are bouncy, therefor the catch must be made with 2 hands.

For advanced catchers, once one ball is hit and the catcher finds it to catch hit another for him/her to get to immediately after.
