Re: Pitchers and Catchers
It depends really on who is calling the game based on the team,catcher, pitcher, ect
Some teams will call the game from the bench, coach to catcher to pitcher
others will go over a game plan they want followed and expect the catcher to work with that game plan in mind allowing him to make decisions on the fly from things he observes from a catching perspective that a coach cant pick up from the dugout.
There are some pitchers (Schilling & Maddux) off the top of my head that look at so much tape in preparation that they basically call the game, of course with the catcher briefed beforehand so not a lot of shaking off has to be done.
So I guess so sum it up........it varies.
