As a former player for Coach Barksdale, and now a fellow coach, his enthusiasm for teaching the game of baseball (specifically catchers) is unmatched. He has a wealth of knowledge and passion for teaching that reaches players and coaches of all levels. His passion to teach catching is rivaled only by his urgency to obtain new information and justify his techniques and philosophies. The Catching-101 DVD and book combo is a must own for any player or coach’s library. I recommend them both to all of my players.
