Is there such a thing as a routine play?

Being left-handed, Lefty is beginning his journey to his designated positions (Pitcher, First Base or Outfield).  Lefty is playing a lot of outfield now.  I get a little crazy when I see him try to catch a fly ball with one hand.  I know it is not practical to catch every ball with two hands, but when he is under the ball, I encourage him to use two hands to catch.  His hands are small, the glove it big, the ball is heavy, it gives him a better chance of maintaining the catch if he uses two hands.  If I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times, “Two Hands”.  Instead of saying it over and over again, I believe I just found a video clip I can show him that may have more of an impact.
