Baseball Pitching Skills: Defensive Goals

Discourage the stolen base attempt. Predetermine pick or pitch. Pick at proper time (with hold or right handed pitcher, with look location for left handed pitcher), never throw pick away (Not attempting to get out, unless it is given). Okay, I feel like I am in an episode of Dragnet. (Baseball Pitching)

The Catcher: The Must Do's
