The catcher is a player in a baseball game. When scoring plays, the catcher's number is a 2.
Importance in the gameEdit
A catcher stands (or more accurately crouches) down in a position sort of like a frog (ribbit!) and starts to try to catch the pitches that a batter misses the ball or doesn't swing. If this happens, the umpire must announce if the pitch is a ball or a strike, and on occasion, fair or foul.
Often, catchers that do not hit very well bat low in the lineup.
A catcher is a part of the battery in a baseball game. Not like the kind you put in machines to make them work.
