Here they come, with speed too impressive to appreciate with the human eye, which is why we've curated a short list of this last week's most accomplished plays, brought to you with Statcast magic.
At the top of the list is Jorge Alfaro, quick to his feet and swift to exchange the ball, throwing out Inciarte with a 1.85-second pop time and 89.3 mph throw (only the 3rd-hardest caught stealing throw in 2018). There's more where that came from. Check out our top 5 Statcasts from this week including:
- Alfaro nabbing Inciarte.
- Acuna's fantastic grab.
- Moran's eye-high homer.
- Taylor's 98.8 mph toss.
- Trout stealing 2, scoring.
There's nothing quite like the frustration of getting a terrible feed in practice.
When you're working on backhands, and the feeds are not appropriately challenging (too difficult or too easy), the result shows minimal improvement. Redundant at best. If optimal growth and stretch happens in that small window of just beyond your reach, then the feeds should reflect that same approach. Specificity. Stretch. Resulting in growth.
MLB's Youth Academy in New Orleans just gave equal opportunity to their players with consistent feeds and guaranteed growth. Watch the VIDEO HERE!
