Visit to the mound

I was told this weekend at a tournament that if a coach signing for pitches gives the sign directly to the pitcher, that's considered a visit to the mound. He told me that signs need to be given to the catcher and he sends them back to the pitcher....

Catcher Faking Throw

Catching Coach ·
Two interesting plays this week highlighted the need to be sure our catchers know the correct way to fake a throw to 2nd with men on 1st & 3rd. Game #1: had a catcher try to fake the throw with the ball actually in his throwing hand. He started the throw to 2nd looking realistic but as his throwing arm moved through the slot he began to let up in an effort to not accidentally loose his grip on the ball. Two things happened, one he didn’t fool anyone with the “fake”, and...
