Coach Barksdale had a huge influence on not only myself, but my catching career. The energy he brought every day to coach the catchers made me love the position even more. Now as a coach for the University of Louisville I use the same techniques that I learned as a player with my catchers today. The book Catching-101 has been a great tool for me to use as a guide for how I want to teach my catchers. I would say that the Catching-101 DVD/book combo is great for any upcoming DI catcher out there.
