Does anyone know this answer off hand-- What is the difference between training by using the throwing pen vs. playing catch in DT? Just wondering. Also, how much use is it to start training batting power around 6star?

Appreciate the help folks.

throwing pen helps alot in throwing
playing catch will get catching good but throwing is not as good as using the throwing pen

Just place 1 guy in the catch circle, you will get mostly catch, and hardly any throwing.

playing catch gives mostly catching gains and small throwing gains
the throwing pen gives only throwing gains.

As far as training in bat power at 6*, I think it is just your preference. Just keep in mind that they should be hitting at least 50% in the contact zone (I prefer at least 70-80% though) to get good power gains.

Unless you have totally none (ok, or VERY little) throwing.. you wont get much AT ALL from the dirt catching circle. If you put your guys there right off the bat on a fresh new team you'll get some running throwing and catching.

I always make sure my guys have some running and throwing before I ever put them in the catching circle.

for catch in the circle, i put my slow runners, if they have maxed or are fast then they go in the catch diamond?

throwing only in the throw cage?
