No, in baseball the pitcher does not follow the instructions of the catcher.
The battery in baseball terms is the pitcher and the catcher.
Because like a battery they are the ones that make everything go. Every play in baseball starts with the pitcher (pitching the ball) and the catcher (giving signs and directing the defense) -- If you dont have the pitcher and catcher, you cant play baseball.. kind of like if a car doesnt have a battery it cant go anywhere
the job of a catcher in a baseball game is to catch the ball when the pitcher pitches the ball across the plate.
yes he can
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.
As the name suggests, the catcher catches the balls thrown by the pitcher and prevents baserunners from stealing bases.
The Pitcher and the Catcher
"The battery" refers to a team's pitcher and catcher.
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.

I think you are asking what they form. If that is what you want to know, they are called "The Battery," because they work together to try and get the batter out. The catcher makes hand signals for the pitcher to see telling him what type of pitch to throw. The pitcher will either nod or shake his head to let the catcher know if that is the pitch he wants to deliver or not.
A catcher will put whiteout on his fingernails when the pitcher is having trouble seeing the signs the catcher is giving for what pitch to throw.
The coach cannot shout out things to "relay to his pitcher", as obviously if a catcher or 1st baseman can hear him the pitcher would. In more advanced levels of baseball the catcher is the one responsible for relaying messages to the pitcher. Even in MLB you will see the catcher look into the dugout and then call time and go talk to the pitcher
The player in baseball that is positioned behind the home plate and is responsible for receiving the pitch from the pitcher is called the catcher.
