Baseball Catching Mechanics

Manteca Baseball Club mechanics classes were developed to teach and reinforce the fundamentals of the game. Video analysis is used in all MBC mechanics classes to eliminate guesswork. A player that is fundamentally sound and disciplined in all techniques will develop confidence and begin to reach their potential.

Thank you to the local little leagues for providing 27 catchers to attend our free catchers clinic on March 12th. Thank you to our local varsity catchers for providing the instruction.
