Coach Jeff Ware goes over the proper way to field the High Chopper as a pitcher in this video tip. The High Chopper is not something we see too often, but when it happens the play can be messed up without the proper form. The Hitter has done exactly what we want and hit a ground ball, making sure our body is in the right place will give us the best chance to record the out. Add the high chopper into your Pitchers Fielding Practice drills or PFP to make sure the next time it happens you are ready to make the play.
