I get asked a lot. Why do you read so much? Because I love to be proven wrong.
Not the answer you expected. I never said we had all the answers, are always right. We just search for the best one we can find.
Recently a coach that I highly respect for infield play made the comment, "your warming up your infielders wrong. "
Really? Do tell.
How often does an infielder throw the ball back in the direction it came from.................thinking........... "never". So why do you have them warm up doing it. "Because everyone else does."
So now we have our infielder warm up in fours not twos and in a diamond pattern and throw in a clockwise pattern. A throw they do all the time.
Know the Why.
