John Tamargo provides us a tip on how to receive the ball in a way that brings every pitch back to the middle, giving us a greater chance of it being called a strike. John discusses alternate methods of framing and illustrates how this tip is one that will give the umpire a great look at the pitch and develop a much higher ratio of strikes to balls. Johns method develops a much softer receiving technique and ensures the hands aren't hard and mechanical. A great technique for all levels of play.
