The catchers ready stance also called blocking stance is used anytime a runner is on base or there is 2 strikes on a hitter.
Major League catcher and World Series champion Ryan Lavarnway demonstrates how making your catcher blocking drills measurable and competitive can bring a new spark to your catcher practices [video! This stance happens after you give your signs to the pitcher and he is ready to pitch the ball home. What catchers mitts do the pros use? Get the free videos.
Anyone who has played the position knows how badly you get banged up every game. I do not advocate "toughening up" catchers. If you have a catcher who has a lot of tools, but doesn't have the will to play through the pain of the position, you'd better have another catcher or two on your squad you can go to. Enough to want to work on all of the mechanics of the position all the time, even when it impacts their hitting because they don't get enough batting practice in.
That would catch my attention as a ex catcher! You cant have a belly-acher, an excuse guy, complainer, your head in the grandstands or laziness. Its a tough gig. But those that played the catcher position would not have it any other way.
It is a blast to play it. Never a dull moment. You have the entire field in front of you. You don't want your pitcher and third baseman stopping dead in their tracks at the last second because each thought the other was going to field it. If they don't call for it, you make the call. Imagine losing a game like that. Even if I was a terrible catcher, I would be able to make quality throws to 2B. This MUST be practiced if you are at all serious about the catcher's position.
A catcher always sets the stage for the entire game by throwing a riffle down to second and third base. It makes the other team realize they need gain another advantage on the pitcher. There is always action at those 2 positions. You can never have enough good catching or pitching. If the catcher is working hard to keep up the pace of the game, this will get your players off the field and in the dugout.
