Catching tips and drills

In baseball, the catcher position is the most overlooked position, but the one of the most important other than the pitcher. Your job as a catcher is to keep everything in order and the game moving along. You are the conductor and the rest of your team is the instruments towards a win. You have to be aware of your surroundings and need to be in control at all times. Also as a catcher, you are involved in every play along with the pitcher. There is no such thing as taking a pitch off when you are catching. You need to be locked into the game as soon as you step into the dugout, ready for any possibility.
