Catcher Instruction &
Coaching Tips

Good catcher instruction is vitally important to any ballclub’s potential success.

Baseball teams that are seeking to play the game well without a catcher that can perform physical duties like throwing, catching and blocking they will struggle to compete and play well.

In addition, the thinking part of the game has to be developed and this part of all about baseball is the job of the baseball coach and proper catcher instruction.

41. Puts the ball tightly in the bare hand when tagging with two hands on a tag play at the home plate.

42. Steps out in front of the home plate and give the 1st and 3rd defensive baseball signs to the infielders and pitcher prior to the play.

43. ‘Calls’ and points to the base to throw to on bunt plays.

44. Aggressively and quickly gets out in front of the plate on bunt plays to make a play or call the base to have the throws go to.

45. Makes themselves ‘big’ and ‘soft’ squaring up the shoulders while blocking pitches.

46. Best catcher instruction says do not try to ‘catch’ the ball in the dirt unless it is a short hop catch.

47. Very discretely brings the ball a little bit towards the sternum of the chest without fast, jerky, yanking type obvious motions trying to intentionally deceive the umpire.

48. Keeps the holes in the batters box filled between batters to eliminate bad bounces on balls in the dirt.

49. Catcher Instruction knows to get close enough to the batter where an arms length with a glove on can almost touch the batters back shoulder.

50. Tells the pitcher to immediately back track toward the pitching rubber after delivering the pitch and throw the ball back the pitcher quickly to keep the game speed moving along.

Catcher is the Action-Jackson Position

There is much about baseball catcher instruction in the checklist. As you can see this is not a baseball position for the kids who do not like action or do not want to work hard.

No one can learn everything here at once. This is a checklist for players and baseball coaches to use during the season to teach baseball.

Use the list as a reference guide to help catcher instruction improve during the seasons.

Skip- Came across your books & videos 2 years ago at the end of the season.

I implemented your techniques the next season and can't thank you enough. The kids love practice, we accomplish a lot, and most importantly they all develop throughout the season. I don't worry much if we win or lose just as long as we try and they get better.

My pitchers only throw fastballs and a change up and we do just fine. If the other team hits the ball, great it gives the defense an opportunity to make a play.

I never coach from the box, I just encourage them to hit. And they all know the have the green light on 3-0. The best thing I can do for them is make them better hitters and the only way is to hit! By the way my kids are Junior Little league ages 13-14. Zach, Stockton, CA...
