09/22/2012 - Pitching/Catching Accelerated Training Weekend (Commuter) (Ages 14-18) Nick is a big framed catcher who looks the part. Behind the dish he has a quick release and good footwork which will continue to improve with an increase emphasis on foot speed. Nick has the body to play the position but will need work on his flexibility and overall athleticism. His work in these areas will immediately increase his arm strength and help him to lower his pop time and move better behind the plate. Nick will have to soften up his hands as a receiver, and once he does his handling of pitchers will immediately improve. Nick is good kid, with a good work athletic and has the physical tools/presence to continue improve behind the plate.
