Awesome! Appreciate applying thinking and development!Love this post. We use the following rules (this might be wrong):
1. No runners on - pick.
2. Fast runner on 1st or 2nd - pick.
3. Slow runner on 1st or 2nd - block.
4. Any runner on 3rd - block.
We have a few other scenarios based on count, inning, score, but at 12u that isn't being recognized all of the time.
However, You have brought up something that we are not doing......we actually don't practice glove work with catchers enough. Both of my catchers are strong infielders as well, but it would certainly make sense to start to add this practice more frequently.
Thanks for the great ideas.
