infield & OUtfield / 100% Effort
Performance Phase 1B provides the opportunity for a player to test their defensive skills while throwing at a max intensity.
Depending on a player's goals and their Throwing Schedule, Performance Phase 1B can serve a variety of roles for the proper development of a position player looking to enhance their defensive specific skill. The allotted 25-50 throws within this phase will be conducted at 100% effort and will never exceed the distance of player's position specific throw.
Scenarios for implementation include, but are not limited to:
- Infielders working on quick hands, turning a double play, backhands, etc
- Outfielders working on a “crow-hop”, throwing to bases/cut off man
- Catchers working on “pop times” out of a crouch or standing
- Cut off and relay throws
