As a young man, I thought I wanted to be a sportswriter. After taking a new job in a small town, a veteran sportswriter asked if I enjoyed baseball. I liked playing it but wasn’t much for watching. “You’ll learn to like it here,” he said, explaining that the community had a rich Little League, high school and junior college baseball heritage. He was correct; in sort order, I loved baseball, even watching baseball.
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.
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.
