Some catchers are unjustly blamed
for not putting a runner out who gets
a big lead off the pitcher, who Is real-,
ly at fault. Here not only a good
throw will fail, but it Is often useless
to throw at all.
Good catchers make many unexpect
ed throws. They must throw from an
unnatural position and with a Jerky
motion of the arm. Archer threw with
a snap of the arm while standing fiat
footed and put many out on first base.
The catcher signals second baseman
that he is going to throw the next
pitched ball to him; the pitcher deliv
ers it a little to one side so that It
can be handled easily; the shortstop
knows the next ball will not be'hlt and
to can back up second base. This tin
expected tbrow often puts the runner
out on second.
