Is it called a catcher or back catcher?

The full term is Catcher. In Canada it is referred to as Back Catcher.Both are not correct. If it it must be part of your vernacular, then so be it, but both are not correct. If there is a "Back Catcher" then where is the "Front Catcher."In Canada the term "hardball" is used too. Yes, a Baseball is hard, but the ball used in the game is a 'Baseball.'I am a Canadian and am familiar with the term " back catcher." But it was always used in relation to kid's games of softball -- never baseball. "Hardball " is slang and has been used for generations in Canada to distinguish between thosewho play the game using the harder sphere as opposed to the game employing the lighter sphere that doesn't hurt so much when it hits you.surreyfan
