Haven’t seen Trosky talk about that technique but seems legitFunny story. I had a girl recently on my youngest DDs 10U rec team who was afraid of ground balls. I told her jokingly that the cow used to make her glove gave his life for no reason because she wasn’t using it. After getting over the initial shock of realizing that her glove did indeed come from a cow, she has fielded much better. She has since named her glove Betsy (she said that was the cows name) and she doesn’t shy away from groundballs anymore. If teaching them to read and pick hops doesn’t work one could always try the dead cow guilt tactic.
