It's a technical position, it is so ingrained visually with TV that I believe the position has lost an allure that it had prior. Not that it matters, but I caught for a year in 5th grade, it was something... sitting there looking out at your teammates.
Break the magic in pro ball by placing a person who can't get it done and it's a different animal.
