  1. True or False? Pop-up priority is a fool proof method for deciding who should catch each fly ball or pop-up. Center fielders have priority over corner outfielders. Outfielders have priority over infielders. Shortstop is priority on the infield and middle infielders have priority over corner guys. All infielders have priority over catcher, etc. You should always follow this model.
  2. True or False? There is never a good reason to ever let a catchable fly ball drop on purpose.
  3. True or False? The bullpen is an important training ground for catchers. Even when you have multiple bullpens to catch in one session, it’s important to focus your efforts on creating quality habits and doing things game-like because those habits, good or bad, will transfer into the game.
