More studies at the plate

Recommended Posts

I was going to post this one - you beat me to it!

Why doesn't he adjust 3BLE? He just stays POP. In the other one you posted where Bellino rotates in from first, he gets 3BLE but then looks like he moves too far up (even beyond 1BL). These plays develop so quickly at this level. Instead of pause, read, react - it's more like pausereadreact!

Give him credit he got the call right even though his positioning wasn't the best.

Last Night on MLB Tonight Mitch Williams last night gave Nauert credit for the good call, but added he thought the position was bad...

Meh-Close play...anyway what's with the finger wag? I'm pretty sure he won't be teaching that one this fall to the up an comers!

Do as I say not as I do. Heard that from parents teachers many times. Same principle here.

i think he was safe

Trust me he wasn't. They slowed it down tremendously on YES and he was out. That replay isn't in this video.

      Posted this on Ask the Umpire first, then saw the mechanics thread.   (Sorry...newbie to the forum)
       
      Couple of plate work questions:
       
      Question 1:
      How do you handle the situation with a tall catcher and short batter?    If I set up with my eyes at the top of the strike zone, I'm losing the outside corner because the catcher's head is in the way; and if I set up with my chin no lower than the top of catcher's head, I can see the outside corner, but am well above the top of the strike zone.   
       
      Question 2:
      How do you handle a catcher who slides over to the inside corner when a batter is already crowding the plate?    When this happens, it takes my slot away.    I've been told to set up higher, but when I do that I can't see the catcher glove the ball, meaning I'm guessing on pitches low in the zone.
       
      I'm working middle school and high school baseball and softball.

      ..........I was NOT actually ......
       
      I was NOT tracking the ball ALL THE WAY into the mitt with my eyes!  Yeah, yeah, go ahead, ........................I know, I know!
       
      Come to find out, I was tracking it with my eyes right into the front edge of the plate, (where I like to invision seeing an imaginary pane of glass), but I wasn't finishing the tracking into the mitt ...
       
      WOW, ...all it took was an instructor to see that and go over a few things, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!  It just 'feels' better, and the view is so much better!  Now, I'll only suck 1/2 as bad
       
      It's just a testament to the value of going to a professional clinic!

      Lefty batter with a lefty pitcher and they want an inside pitch. Being in the slot kind of gets us in a tough spot to see the release of the ball and such. What are your mechanics to help your vision in that spot?
