one thing though, dont kick out your feet because that creates a lot of distance between you and the ball.. your glove leads with throwing hand behind it -- it goes out infront of you and your body gains distance to surround the glove

cut down the distance and blocking becomes very easy


Catchaprospect,

What has been your success at teaching this to small diamond catchers (ages 8-12).
