They each have an important purpose, but catcher is more important in the levels in which you can steal bases. This applies since the catcher prevents passed balls, as a runner can steal easily on passed balls.

In Little League if a runner is running from 3rd base to home and the catcher is on the baseline and the runner knocks the catcher down what is the call?

Assuming the catcher is near home plate, the runner has to slide. If he doesn't and knocks the catcher down he is out. If the catcher is up the baseline and is waiting to make the tag the runner would be called out for crashing into him. If the slide knocks the catcher down, the outcome of the play would depend on whether the catcher maintained control of the ball during the tag and whether the runner touched home plate.

How many people make up a typical baseball team and what positions do they play?

This doesn't have an exact number. The MLB has a limit on how many people can be on the team based on the part of the season. However, little league and high school allow as many as you want. There are only 9 that can be on the field. Their positions are labeled 1-9. Respectively, they are: pitcher, catcher, first base, second base, third base, shortstop, left field, center field, and right field.

Can the runner jump over the catcher in little league baseball and land on home to score?

yes but you can not maul over the catcher In the 1979 Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA., a player jumped over the catcher. Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores, MI was playing Campbell, CA. in a semi-final game. Grosse Pointe centerfielder Mike Walkowiak scampered home as the throw came in. The throw beat Walkowiak and the Campbell catcher crouched low to make the inevitable out. Just then, Walkowiak hurdled high over the catcher and both feet landed on home plate without even coming close to the catcher. It was the go ahead run at the time, putting Grosse Pointe up 5-4. Mike's ingenuity wasn't enough, however, as Campbell went on to win the game 8-5.


If catcher drops the ball can the batter run to first?

Only on a third strike with 1st base un-occupied. This does not apply to Little League. Note: he is entitled to TRY to run to first base. He can be thrown out by the catcher if the throw reaches the baseman before the runner. If he beats the throw, then he is safe. The pitcher is given credit for a strikeout. The catcher is given an error.
