With many young players that do not have the hand/wrist strength to catch a hard thrown ball, a large amount of past balls are created. This is produced by the wrist bending back as the ball hits the oversized catchers mitt, allowing the ball to continue to the back stop.
Help your kids and your team by teaching them framing. Framing not only allows for more strikes to be called but it also allows for the would be past ball to be funneled to the chest instead of the backstop.
To do this simply teach them to catch the outside part of the ball at all times. High balls wait for it and low balls go get it.
