Catcher exclusive

(United states)

Making a cross with tape on your carpet or wood floor. This drill can be while your watching tv or even on a rainy day. As I was saying the catcher with or without gear squats in catchers position. Then jumps out of the position like throwing to first. Placing their left foot in the upper right corner and the right foot in the lower right. Then squat again jump up like throwing to second. Which means your left foot in the upper left and your right in the lower right corner.

Then squat one last time like you are throwing to third. Then jump up place your left foot in th lower left and your right foot in the lower right. You should keep doing this repeatedly this will strengthen your calfs and hamstrings. This drill is to be done very fast it may hurt a little at first but trust me it leads to success.

Nice drill for building up strength for any catcher
by: Coach Dan

Hi Jazmin,

Thanks for sharing this drill. How often do you do it (times per week) and for what period of time each time you do the drill? This looks like a great drill for building up those muscles you need in your calves to get through a full season of games.

Thanks for sharing,
