sometimes the manager gives the catcher signs from the dugout. the catcher gives the sign to the pitcher what he recommends if he doesn't get a sign from the dugout. in the end, obviously, the pitcher has the final descision on what he wants to throw, but as the level of play increases, pitch calling becomes more dependent on the catcher.
The common term for a pitcher and catcher is "battery."
No, in baseball the pitcher does not follow the instructions of the catcher.
You cant have two pitchers at the same time but during the game you can call time and swap the pitchers but the pitcher can not be catcher and the catcher can not be pitcher.
No. The catcher calls timeout before he goes to the mound to talk to the pitcher.
How it is to become a softball catcher if your a pitcher already depends on how good you are.
Both the catcher and the pitcher have to know what pitch is going to be thrown. This is is usually only done in the MLB because of the variety and ferocity of pitches. When the catcher knows what pitch is going to be thrown it gives him a better chance of catching the pitch and less chance of making a costly error. If the pitcher were to signal the catcher what pitch is going to be thrown, the batter could easily see the signal and eventually decipher the signal. This is why you see the catcher giving the signal quickly and out of sight of the batter.
The coach or whoever may choose a picther to pitch the ball to the batter in the game the pitcher simply stands on a particular line takes one step then releases the ball underarm. If you would like to change the pitcher than call time to swap the pitcher but the catcher can not be pitcher and the pitcher can not be catcher The coach or whoever may choose a picther to pitch the ball to the batter in the game the pitcher simply stands on a particular line takes one step then releases the ball underarm.

The catcher gets the putout.
Yes--there's no limit to how many players can be substituted at once. Also, in the National League (or any league where pitchers have to bat) a team can make a "double switch", which in the case of a pitcher and catcher would result in the new pitcher batting in the previous catcher's spot in the batting order, and the new catcher in the pitcher's spot (probably ninth).
Baseball fields from high school on up have the pitcher's rubber located 60 feet 6 inches from home plate. The catcher lines up a couple feet behind the plate, so the pitcher and catcher are about 63 feet apart.
No, because a time out was granted to the defense allowing the catcher to go up to the pitcher.
It depends on where the out was made. Pretty much all the infielders catch the ball. The final player to get the ball in around the horn is the catcher who gives it to the pitcher.
A pitcher and catcher are called a 'battery'. A number in parenthesis next to a player's name would mean the inning the pitcher/catcher came into the game. The starting pitcher and catcher do not have a number in parenthesis next to their names.
the person who throws it back to the pitcher after an out is the catcher!!!
The pitcher does not get an assist unless the batter strikes out and the ball bounces to the pitcher, who throws the ball to the catcher, who tags out the runner.
There is more than just one reason that the catcher calls the game. One reason is that most of the time the catcher is more familiar with the opposing hitters. Since the catcher is also aware of what pitches are working that day for his pitcher, it makes more sense for him to call for pitches that will keep the opposing hitters of balance. Many times the pitches are signalled in to the catcher from either his manager or pitching coach. This allows the pitcher to consentrate only on what his catcher is calling.
The vast majority of Balks are called on the pitcher, but a Balk can also be called on the catcher. With runners on base, if the catcher steps out of the catcher's box before the pitcher releases the ball, it's Balk on the catcher. When this happens, it is almost always while attempting to give an intentional base on balls.
the pitcher, which means you are the catcher.
