In school, my positions were 1st Base and Pitcher. One of my coaches tried to make a catcher out of me, but that’s a story for another time.
In trying to groom me for the position of catcher, Coach Hargrove basically had one rule…”Stay in front of the ball.” There were no exceptions. No Excuses. Even if it meant you getting bruised up, “Stay in front of the ball.”
Spring Hill Badger #30, Catcher Ryan Stevens, has that rule down cold.
