. Make sure you come THROUGH home plate...Follow the throw almost like a pitcher...
Not to be argumentative, but when I observe this, I count it as a negative. To the bare eye, what you describe would suggest to me that the catcher is "running with the ball" --taking extra steps.
I envision a catcher's jumpshift/throw/followthrough occurring within the confines of (large) phone booth.
But I'm no expert. Just my 2 cents.
