Baseball Catcher Instruction

Delaware Baseball Catcher Instruction

BullyBats provides baseball catcher instruction through private lessons, small group and camps.

The catcher is the only player with the ability to impact the game in all phases. However, his role as a defender and leader to the team and pitching staff is most important. Rather than the offense he will provide. At BullyBats, we take pride in teaching our catchers all three phases of the position in detail.
