Re: Catchers: How important is "framing a pitch"?
It was one of the things I didn't like with Jason LaRue....who always looked like he was stabbing at the ball, even strikes.
I would say a ball is harder to be called a strike by 'framing' the pitch, than it is for a strike to be called a ball by sloppy receiving.
