    Hey if it is good enough for Pedey it is good enough for me.I personally just use to take a single step in but I can see
    how this would be good given a sufficient amount of coordination/timing..e.g not something many 10U kids posess

    The way it is taught at Auburn, the fielder is at the peak of their 'hop' at contact.

    Not that different from hitting ... a hitter is just beginning their move out during the pitcher's release. Likewise the fielder is just beginning to move down from their peak at bat/ball impact.
