Thanks to your query. Completely different coaches have completely different ideas about that. The coaches who inform their pitchers to not let the infielder deal with the pop ups imagine the infielders would have a greater angle to catch the ball. As well as, for the reason that pitcher was simply in movement, having pitched the ball, in addition they really feel that the infielders can be more proficient at catching it since that’s the solely focus. Additionally, a part of it may merely be a hold over from baseball as properly.
I’ve additionally seen the place coaches could have the pitcher catch something that’s in entrance of them, as a fly ball is less complicated caught going ahead than backwards, and something over the pitcher’s head (that means from the place she landed on the completion of the pitch)must be left to the infielders.
Hope this helps,
