Your pitcher’s curveball doesn’t break and you’ve tried everything. Sometimes simply changing the catcher’s positioning can be enough to help your pitcher see the break in her mind, and then create the break in her pitch.

Let’s take a look at what I’m talking about. The typical catching position is directly behind home plate making the catcher have to twist her curveball toward an imaginary target (Standard Catching Position picture to the right).

Instead, help your pitcher by moving your catcher over to where the pitch should end up, and angle her more toward the plate (as shown in the Curveball Change of Position picture to the right).

Simply changing the catchers position can be what it takes to help improve your pitcher’s curveball.
