Throwing Runners Out From Behind the Plate presents an overview of the key factors that affect the ability of a catcher to effectively and consistently make the necessary throws. The DVD explains that while the catchers want to throw every runner out, several variables impact his ability to do so - some of which are beyond his control. The DVD also discusses the need for catchers to exhibit poise at all times and outlines the basic fundamentals involved in sound throwing mechanics. In addition, the DVD covers several specific situations that catchers need to master, including throws to the bases, fielding bunts, handling pitches, and pitch-outs.
