The catchers can ole the guy if they don't want to get hurt. No one is nailing their cleats to home plate.
But for all the games that are played each year, how many catchers have serious injuries? More or less than taking people out at 2nd? Pitchers throwing pitches? Batters getting hit in the head or hand?
