Short Hops


#1

I have a tip for short hops for first baseman or even infielders/outfielders charging balls. Pushing through the ball is the best way to get the ball effectively while simultaneously reducing the chance for injury. When stabbing at the ball hops and ball direction can be very unpredicatble… GO GET THAT HOP!

P.S. Watch pro first basemen and how they pick the ball.

Thanks for the info Hoy

Do you mean like on a first baseman pick at it by swinging your arm? That’s what I do and it seems to work.

That is essentially what I mean. You will see first basemen either push through or swipe upward wildly depending on the type of throw haha.
