How to Catch a Baseball : Crow Hop in Baseball


Hi! I’m Bill Rogan along with Andy and on
behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to talk about something called a crow hop that allows
you to get rid of the ball with some power behind it. Andy will hit me some ground balls
and I’ll demonstrate the crow hop. You come in, field it, and this little jump right there
is a crow hop. A crow hop is a little half step. We peel the ball and you get into throwing
position. You want to make sure you’re square to your target. Bring it in. Just for the
outfielders, you should glove the target. By that I mean stick your glove where you
want to throw it and follow through. Good field position. Pitch is coming in and there’s
the crow hop.
