And each pitch is like a chess move. You’ve thrown two fastballs in a row, so you might come in with a curveball to throw off the batter’s timing. However, he’ll expect that, so maybe you’ll throw a fastball inside before he can react to it. The catcher will signal to the pitcher what he thinks should happen; the pitcher might agree or might “shake him off” and consider the next suggestion. Or the coach signals the catcher what to do and he passes it on to the pitcher.
Let me explain. Scoring baseball games means keeping an account, on a score sheet, of what happens in the game. Some people just keep track of outs, hits and scores. That’s fine and a good place to start, but my breakthrough to understanding was the result of tracking every pitch. I liked to say that I could reconstruct an entire game with my scorebook. That’s a helpful tool because you do not know what play will end up being particularly important. An outfielder’s assist in the third inning might prove to be a pivotal point. You’ll see that more clearly when you’re able to review the entire game after the fact.
What type web and back? Baseball gloves come with different types of webs and backs. The open web is preferred more by outfielders. The closed web is preferred more by infielders and pitchers. When it comes to the back of the glove, open back or closed back, it varies from player to player. Each individual has their own preference.
