“Pop Time” is a very sexy term in the world of catching. Every catcher with aspirations of playing at the next level probably knows their pop time and has goals in place to help improve that time.
Most people immediately think arm strength, but today’s guest goes a different route when I ask him about the most effective way for catchers to improve their pop time.
Enter Columbia University Baseball Coach, Coach Boretti. Coach Boretti was a stud catcher in his own right (Davidson Baseball Hall of Fame), and has continued to develop catchers as a coach since his playing days in the Indians organization came to an end.
Special thanks to Coach Boretti for spending some time with us and sharing his catching wisdom.
