The T Catcher drill is great for cleaning up footwork. This drill focuses on the stepping motions of catchers when they go to make a throw. The catcher can do this drill dry, without catching and throwing a ball. The important thing with this drill is footwork. To work on the upper body, this drill can be done with a mini glove or a regular glove.
To perform this drill, a T needs to be drawn on the dirt or in it. The topmost crossbar of the T should be directly in front of the catcher. The long part of the T should be drawn directly to home plate and pointed at second base.
The catcher should get into proper secondary catching position as if they have just received the ball. The top of the T is directly in front of them. The player is centered on the long part of the T. The catcher is going to stand up, take two steps and throw to 2nd base or pretend to throw if doing this drill dry. The T is used as a visual reference. The first step should be small and on the opposite side of the T. The second step should be larger and on the correct side of the T. The footwork with this drill should be quick but explosive. Make sure the 2nd step is driving towards 2nd base and that the player is in a power position for throwing after landing.
