    If you go to a players profile on MLB.com (just to to the team's roster page and click on the player), there are clips on the right hand side. Often for catchers they have some clips of them throwing out runners.

    Edit: Here's a great one: http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/med...00804282606585. There are plenty more if you just search "throw out" or something like that on the MLB.com video player.

      Thanks.

      Yea, I go through those archives ALL the time. I was just wondering if somebody had something "isolated" that I could download, and just watch over and over again.

          Just go to the Cards website, then roster, then Yadi. There's a few of his clips in there.

                    would this be the footwork to teach a younger kid, or does he need to be more straight ahead towards second? Both of mine have begun to catch some. Thanks.

                      This is what we teach to all of our students both male and female. You do not want them moving "straight ahead" as it will almost always cause a young player to throw with too much arm, and not enough hips.

                      The right foot moves across towards the left, should touch down half way between where the two feet were originally. The left foot drives forward to touch down directly in front of right foot helping to close off the front side.

                      Too many young players use the "double twisting, triple crow-hop" technique of throwing to 2nd. They end up releasing the ball 2-3ft on the pitchers side of home.

                      Have them use mechanics like this and let them know it's ok if the ball does not get all the way to 2nd in the air.

                        What do you mean by straight ahead?

                        Catchers, like all baseball players, need to get sideways to the target before throwing because this allows them to throw with their entire bodies and not just their arms.
