Catching with two hands is no longer considered a good way to field a ball and hasn't been for decades and even before that it wasn't the standard at upper levels. Choking up is something that a few players do, but most do not. Very few hitting coaches would instruct their players to choke up. It is an obsolete approach because it simply doesn't help in the way people used to think it did. If it worked it would be commonplace.
You can say it over and over again until you're blue in the face A.D. Doesn't make it any more true.
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
