The position of catcher in baseball requires a wide-ranging set of physical and mental skills. In this helpful handbook, a former catcher offers valuable instruction on everything an athlete needs to succeed behind the plate at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels. Drawing on real-life scenarios, it addresses nearly every situation a catcher will encounter.

In addition to the mechanics of catching, blocking, picking, throwing and pop-ups, topics include choosing the right gear; developing a healthy relationship with the umpire; how to call a great game; when to call a pick-off; how to get runners out and keep them from advancing; making the tag at the plate; how to carry yourself like a team leader; injury prevention and other issues. With tips and drills designed to improve the specific skills required for catching, this guide will prove indispensable to any catcher looking to up his game.
