Blocking The Throat

It's been brought to my attention that young players need to tuck their chin when they block. Ok, who am I kidding, I've known this for years, from experience. Yes, I was hit in the throat my fair share of times as a young catcher, but, it wasn't because I forgot to tuck my chin, and many of the kids today who still get hit in the throat are not getting hit because they forgot to tuck their chin either. You see, many coaches only diagnose the symptom. The see a kid get hit in the throat and then automatically and emphatically yell "TUCK YOUR CHIN!"
