Baseball receiving, rookie level, one of the building block skills to master on their way to a successful and enjoyable experience.
Forever interlocked with throwing, from the time they have that first game of catch, that combination will become one measuring stick for their success within the game.
Virtually everything within baseball revolves around a players ability to successfully catch, and throw a ball.
If those initial experiences lead to getting hit, it takes a great deal of effort and patience to remove the fears and apprehension that were created.
The material within is designed to help instruct receiving at the Rookie Level, providing young players a solid base, for this very essential skill development.
Receiving Tips ~ From the Dugout
It's the purest reward for a baseball coach when you see the smile emerge and the eyes light up, as all the effort comes to fruition. A 6 year old catches a ball above his waist with his thumbs together, keeping the ball from rolling up his glove, straight at his face.
He is on his way to a skill which helps eliminate the fear of being hit with a thrown or batted ball, dramatically increasing his safety, self confidence and level of fun!
They are special moments indeed, and some of life's greatest pleasures, no matter what level you coach!
