Softball Catcher Skills: Rapid Fire Transfer
Drill [Intro Music]>>AJ Hamilton: Transferring the softball
from the glove to the throwing hand needs to be smooth and quick, especially when a
baserunner is threatening to steal the next bag. The rapid fire transfer drill is a great way
to create muscle memory and focus solely on the transfer between hands.>>Hamilton: The athlete is going to be on
their knees to isolate the top part of their body. A coach is going to toss a ball that will
then be received by the athlete and transferred in the middle or close to their throwing shoulder.>>Hamilton: As they transfer, the thumbs
will break down. The frequency of the softballs being thrown
will increase to a rapid pace. This drill is a great way to get game ready
and takes very little time to complete. [Outro Music]
