Catchers' Clinic: June 22, 2010

On June 22, 2010, ABYB coordinated with Acton-Boxborough Regional High School Junior Varsity Baseball Coach Garrett McCarthy to give a 90-minute clinic to interested Minor B, Minor A, and Majors catchers. With a staff of two of his players, Coach McCarthy provided instruction and encouragement to 27 aspiring catchers.

The Drills

Coach McCarthy and his staff led players through drills at three stations, covering:
  • Proper warm-up and stretching
  • Body positioning (empty bases and with runners on)
  • Receiving and framing
  • Receiving and throwing
  • Blocking bad pitches
  • Bunt defense
  • Pop-fly and pop-foul defense

ABYB extends its appreciation to Coach McCarthy for providing this opportunity to ABYB players!
