Reaction – Catching Drill

Fastpitch Drills

Have the catcher, in full gear, crouch four feet away from a wall. The coach/player stands two feet behind the catcher and throws the ball over the head of the catcher and at the wall. The catcher can not see the throw and must react to where it rebounds off of the wall.

Insist on good side to side movement, containing the ball with the shoulders, and staying square behind the ball. As the catchers get more proficient at this drill, vary the speed and angles at which the ball comes off of the wall.

This drill helps the catcher develop quickness and a good response time.
