Joe Mauer Gives Advice to Young Catchers (Click image for video)

"Obviously, being a catcher, the number one thing to do is to catch the ball before you do anything!

Further, I would say that you’re going to want to be a good example for your other teammates. The catcher is one of the two positions where everybody on the field is looking at you. So, you can set a good example by working hard and hustling – really setting the tone for your team.

So, I would say you should work hard. A catcher is kind of like the quarterback out there, so you have to set a good example."

    Thanks for the advice Joe! My 10 year old is passionate about playing catcher and I really appreciate you sharing! Your advice is good because Cather is such a key position for any team. It's hard! You have to be involved in the pitching game, scouting and evalutating the other teams' batters, the fielding game, etc. It's a pleasure to see great catchers in action! Thanks for your advice. Would love to hear more when you can!

    Hey Mike, my name is Rob Morrison. I found your blog while watching the Cards Cubs game today (July 15), which they mentioned during a commercial break. I really enjoyed what you had to say about youth sports and life in general. Thanks for the read and good luck with the rest of the season. Rob

    Thanks for sharing the video and for everything you do. My son wants to be a catcher and I'll be sure to show this to him. By the way, I'm sorry you got tossed last night at the Cubs game. I guess you know by now, Soriano did catch that ball.
