Youth baseball catchers are key to winning games. If for no other reason than making sure balls don’t get past them allowing a walk to become the same as a home run. But at the higher levels of play we some times get to see great youth baseball catchers in action. Here we see one snap throw to second base to catch a runner.
That is right. A snap throw to second that works. But this trick play involves the shortstop and pitcher as well and takes about 10 pitches to finally be complete.
How many Little League players can work a trick play that takes 10 pitches to finally translate into the out? Not many I presume.
