Not getting up, getting into full long throw position in time to throw a runner out, and being on the brink of death and not able to stand up at all are way different.
There is a huge difference in girls softball and boys baseball that allows many differences to be utilized and taken advantage of if a players ability allows. Biggest is obviously the distance of the bases. Infielders don't have very long throws at all, and yet most are taught a whole lot of mechanics that involve full range of motion as though they are throwing from the fence to home and all of that takes precious seconds. Howard Kobata has done an excellent job (imho) of sharing different techniques and challenging the notion that softball infielders have to throw like baseball infielders. His techniques involve speed to the receivers glove, not just ball speed in the air.
The same can be said/learned for catchers. Some girls have strong enough arms that they don't have to spring up in order to get a girl out at second base. The overall time is the important factor, not just how pretty she looks standing up and the fact that using her whole body might make the ball travel faster. Objective is the out, not the mechanics or style. If a catcher looks great popping up just right, following through on the throw just right but the runner is safe its not a good throw, its a terrible throw. If she kicks the ball to second base in time to get the runner out it's a fantastic throw. I've seen some elite catchers drop to their knees and actually follow through with their back leg knee just as if they were standing up.
Every single player has to be instructed based on the skills/assets that they bring to the table, not based on anyone's image of how someone else that's successfull might do it.
