Best Answer

The 'routine' is called around the horn and is a derivation of an old Baseball drill that has been done for many, many years. The drill starts with all four infielders and the catcher in their 'normal' position with the catcher holding the ball. The catcher throws to third base as if a player was attempting to steal. The third baseman catches the ball and throws a ground ball to the second baseman who throws to the shortstop who is covering second base as if there was a force play. The shortstop throws to first base as if finishing a double play. The first baseman throws to the catcher and the process begins again.

The drill is meant to be done quickly and crisply and designed to practice accurate throwing and hustle.

What is Hind catcher?

A hind catcher is the same thing as a catcher in Baseball. It is the person who plays behind the batter and catches the ball when it is missed or not struck at. I know the term was used regularly in the south in the fifties and earlier. I'm not sure if it is still in use there, but I think most places have dropped the "hind" and now simply use the term "catcher." I am not sure of the origin of this term other than the fact that the catcher played behind or "hind" the home plate. I have seen one suggestion that the word "behind" was used to describe the position much in the same way you would say "in the field" to describe outfielders.
