See The Gear

I'm starting something new and I figured I would invite all of you to watch...I'm starting a social media business called "See The Gear". STG is built by and for those people who LOVE gear. Our channels will appeal to those people and players who want to know what type of glove a player uses. As of today, we are on instagram as SeeTheGear. We are launching our YouTube channel in the next few weeks. Our YT channel will have videos, product reviews and some features on rising prospects in...

Wesley, As a 16 year old, you have a good base to work with. I would recommend three things immediately: 1. Lose the Knee Savers. This should allow you to get lower in your stance. Also along that line...get more flexible in your hip flexors. Take a yoga class. You have a pretty good sized frame and you will need to present a low target at times. Flexibility is very important. 2. Find a long toss or arm strengthening/stabilizing program. We use Jamie Evans' Velo-City (...

Has your velocity been clocked on your throw down?

Sooo...this is getting really cool. Our Instagram following has grown to 9200+ followers in just 2 months. We have shot a few videos which we are in the process of editing them for YouTube. We show the best gear from the top players and teams at all levels of baseball. Some really big names in baseball have contacted us so we have some neat things in the works. We have started a website - seethegear.com. As of right now, it resolves to our facebook page but that is changing soon.

I'm no expert at all in catching but why are you turning the glove down just before you receive? After you catch the ball your glove is nice and quiet but that little flip could cost you some strikes.

I disagree that the "flip" is going to cost any strike (in and of itself). As an umpire, I am focused on the ball, not the glove -- and by the time the ball gets to the glove the glove is back where it should be. I'll leave any comments on the value of the flip or how it might affect other aspects of the catching to the coaches here.

I will try to get video of me hitting sometime in the future. I knew someone was going to say that. A question related to hitting off the tee that I have is, how far off the tee should I be able to hit the ball? I am going into my senior year, I am 6 ft and 200 lbs.

It says that it is a Coach's Guide, will it work for a catcher?

I would strongly advise thoroughly investigating this DVD and incorporating it into everything you do https://vimeo.com/ondemand/neccdvd

DVD is too long, maybe 2-3 minutes Max and need to incorporate some hitting.

Re: Catching Video, Feedback Appreciated

Thanks for the advice. I will include hitting in future videos. I will shorten it some more by taking out the clips you suggested. I will get more video of my throws to second. I got this video taken a couple weeks ago and have gotten better. Got my pop time down below 2.0 and my best at a 1.8.

Wesley, First, I think it is great that you are doing this. From experience I know that it is difficult to narrow down multiple shots into a concise video. It is important, though that you shorten it, if the intent is to get a college coach to view it. I recommend 2 minutes but no more than 3. My other points: The glove flip is common and typically used as a relaxation technique. Dont worry about that. I would definitely include hitting, maybe the first part if it is the strength of your...

Thanks, to answer your 2, I just re-edited the video and took out that part, but I want to get more football did me throwing to second because I have gotten better and they have gotten faster and are now under 2.0. And for 3 I will do that when I make a new video sometime. Also will try to get hitting. Would hitting off a tee work?

Man you look much better in this video than the one we talked over a few weeks ago. Great job in getting better with hard work. Keep it up. Few things 1. The glove flip isn't a big deal but IMO and others may disagree which is fine but personally I think you may have too much movement. You get into higher velocities it could cause you to be late in receiving but maybe not. I'm a big believer in the down tilt then pop to the spot. 2. Get rid of the throws from the knees. They don't sell you...

I do that to relax my hand and make sure that I stay underneath the ball and that I catch the bottom of the ball and it allows me to stick the pitch instead of the ball bringing my glove out of the strike zone once it hits the mitt.

Like Coach2709's idea of some recoveries after block. Also suggest being on a field that is not all dirt + has a bag at 2nd base for you to throw toward. Good job, keep working!

Okay, I will check it out. Thank you, I will try to get this DVD and learn the more advanced fundamentals of catching.

I will get block and recover video sometime. Finding a field with a grass infield is rather difficult with where I live and most of the time the bases are put away in the sheds which I do not have access to. I will try my best next time to do what I can.

It is a Coach's Guide to teaching catching, but any Catcher can learn a ton from it. From what I can see you have talent & desire. Learning more advanced fundamentals in the craft of catching can only help! Best of luck!!!!

Thanks for the resources. I do have the Catching 101 book by Xan Barksdale. I also have the Art of Catching book by Brent Mayne. I will look at getting the other books. Thank you for all the help. I will try to get some hitting video today maybe and get some more video of throws to second as I am not satisfied with the footage that I do have on my video.

See if one of your coaches would be willing to help grant access to a field, they all want to see 'their boys" do well. Some other sources for you (get for your birthday or Christmas): http://www.coachingcatchers.com/; http://www.catching-101.com/; https://coacheschoice.com/p-21...atching-drills.aspx; http://brentmayne.com/ .

Catching Pop Time

Need some help, tips, advice for my throws to second. I was thinking that I should be throwing under 2.0 to the bag, but I am not from what I saw of my recent video that I got of myself. any advice, mechanically, etc. on what to do? What could I be doing wrong? There is the link to my video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RavimeYq3Ig

I will work on that! What is the best thing to do for arm strength? How often can I long toss and do band work? I do band work like 3 times a week and use it to warm up before a game.

Try to get rid of the arc on the ball. Get on top of it and fire a bullet to the bag.
