In a competitive game under pressure, players often do not utilize the “soft hands” technique. Much like a shock absorber used in various machinery, a player uses fast initial contact and then retreats the glove back in order to transfer the energy from the ball into the player’s arms. This technique allows players to more effectively take control of the play. The Libke Pro Fielder ensures the body maintains the right position and the glove hand prepares to receive even the toughest throw with a soft motion. The glove arm supports a slight bend in the elbow enabling the glove to give with the hop or pick through the short hop. The Libke Pro is the only tool which trains players in this necessary and fundamental technique.
