The interwebs are giving this Georgia catcher the business for his weird throws back to the pitcher during their opening round loss to Ols Miss on Tuesday. You be the judge...

Kind of odd, right?

Sucker is playing possum.... saving his arm to throw a 95MPH into second base.

This used to happen to me when I was a kid playing baseball. I honestly never knew there was a term for this (the "yips") until recently. It is hard to explain and frustrating as hell. Happened to me playing third base.

I played with a guy in high school who got the "yips". He could throw down to second or third or first or anywhere just like normal. Then one random day for some reason he could not throw the ball back to the pitcher. He looked just like this guy. He kept doing it for like a couple weeks. He cured it by throwing balls from the mount to someone behind the plate. For some reason, that cured him. The yips are a strange phenomenon.

You play ball like a girl.

also reminds me of Darrin Dalton of the Phillies, I believe, who struggled throwing back to the pitcher, and had similar hitches in his motion.

A lot of catchers do this. Grayson Greiner for South Carolina did it too

Kinda reminds me of Lamar Latrell's javelin throw in "Revenge of the Nerds".

I noticed that too during the game. Must have the yips!

Can he throw them out at second? That's all that matters.

Mr. Parkman, your a great ballplayer and I just like to say, you're standing on the tracks and the train's coming through, butthead.

Looks like he is left handed throwing right.
