In Salty's last game, Tuesday night at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark, 12 of his throws back to the pitcher landed either short of the mound or in center field. He had five errant throws in the first inning alone.
"He's just got to keep playing until he gets it right," RedHawks manager Bobby Jones said. "I don't know what else to do. It's a shame. It's definitely what's keeping him here. He's blocking the ball well and swinging the bat well. He's just got to figure it out. It's a shame."
I mean I guess it would be a factor to hold a player back, because if theres a runner on third and hes air mailing balls to center field then their gonna have issues. But in all honesty how many stories like this have yall heard over the years with catchers being held back not because they can't throw a guy out at 2nd on a steal or third, or pick a guy off on a snap throw to 1st, but because he can't get the ball back safely to the pitcher?
