If there are no outs and bases are loaded on a drop third strike. What should the catcher do?

Throw the ball back to the pitcher. A batter can not advance on a dropped third if first base is occupied.

In baseball is it a dropped third strike if the pitcher throws a pitch in the dirt with the count 2-2 and the batter swings and misses and the catcher catches the ball off the dirt on one bounce?

It has to be caught it-the-air first. "Dropped Third Strike" is a misleading term. It should be called the "Uncaught Third Strike". So, if the ball touches the dirt before reaching the catcher, it is indeed a dropped third strike.

What makes a good baseball batter?

Well, first of all he should be able to run, and he should be able to hit the ball hard

Do baseball players wear jocks with a cup?

They should, and the catcher normally does. It's usually a safety rule for catchers in High School and college sports.

Why doesn't a baseball player take first base if he gets hit with the ball?

This rule only applies to the player currently at bat but unless the ball bounced off of something else before hitting the batter, he should take first base if he is hit by the ball. Remember though that the ball can't foul off of the catcher's glove (or anything else for that matter) and then hit the batter. He has to be hit directly by the pitch.

In baseball what is the extra line-box going down the first base line and what is the ruling for a batter-runner going to first base Does he have to stay within that box?

That extra line creates a "running box". When a batter puts the ball in play, while running to first base he must run in that box until reaching first. If not, he may be called for interferrence should a fielder, usually the catcher, throw to first and hit the batter/runner if he is outside the box in fair or foul territory.

A batter has 2 strikes he can foul off many pitches even when the pitcher keeps pitching strikes the batter cant hit in bounds the pitcher gets penlized should de 2strikes than 2fouls he is out?

No, why should the batter be penalized for "staying alive" by fouling off pitches. The classic confrontation between pitcher and batter is the heart of baseball.

When the ball is bunted down the first base line who should field the ball?

it depends on where it is. if it is near home plate the catcher should get it. if it is closer to the pitchers mound than the catcher than the catcher should get it. you should call the other guy off if you are getting it so there will be no confusion on who is getting it.

Who covers second base on a throw down from the catcher?

It depends on the arm of the catcher and whether the batter is left-handed or right-handed.OpinionI know a lot of people are taught and as a coach I always go with 2 things, 1. is the batter righty/lefty 2. are we pitching inside outside --- with this information you will be able to tell if he should "slap the ball" the other way or pull the ball in case of a hit and run or batter swinging away. The last thing the defensive team wants to do is create a hole on the side of the infield you are "pitching to" -----tigersy2k3

Should a softball catcher throw to second from her knees?

If the catcher has a good enough arm to, then yes. It is the fastest way.

What does a catcher do in baseball?

The catcher is the position of the man who sits behind home-plate. He wears gear consisting of a cup, chest guard, mask, and leg protectors. The catcher also has a specific type of mitt made just for catching. The main role of the catcher is to call the pitches the pitcher should throw and catch them once they have been thrown. For example, is the catcher gives the number 2 and points to the side, that is a signal for the pitcher to throw a two-seam fastball and to have it off to the selected side (those signals do vary by team). I hope this helps. Any other questions related to baseball, just ask.
