During Paul's major league career, he caught former Cy Young award winners Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Pedro Martinez. In order to become a major league baseball player, you must have a much higher understanding of the game than to reach the college or minor league level. Everyone is extremely talented, they all have great throwing arms and they can all hit.

The only way to learn about what sets apart a major league player is to spend time with and learn from him. He will teach you the finer points of catching on subjects including:

  • Footwork

  • Receiving

  • Throwing

  • Blocking

  • Calling a game

Plus specialty skills such as the PROPER ways to:

  • Block the plate (from a runner)

  • Catch a pop-up

  • Make a play on a bunt

  • Earn your pitcher more close strikes

  • Make a force play at the plate

  • Turn a 1-2-3 double play

Plus mental awareness on subjects such as:

  • Read a hitter's swing and stance

  • Find a hole in a hitters swing

  • Helping a pitcher's in-game mechanics
