The catcher crouches behind home plate. They are usually about 1 1/2 to 2 feet behind the plate. The umpire will stand behind them in most cases, and the batter will stand at the plate in front of them. Catchers have to catch the pitches if the batter doesnt hit it. If the hit was didn't go very far or was a baunt, the catcher MIGHT have to grab the ball and throw to third, first, or home (where ever the play is). If it is best to throw home, the pitcher should be covering.
yes, a high school softball catchers glove can be white.
Softball Catchers stay in a deep squat position for a long time. thus,it's important to strengthen thighs and core and have a flexible lower back. Squats, Single leg deadlift, Goodmornings, pullovers, Jump squats (when you have a good base)

no, mitts are only allow on the field at first base and catchers positions.
no, they can not, but some umpires will not notice.
usually catchers wear a chest pad, leg pads, and a helmet, and they also have a catchers glove
No. Softball is not safe because if you slide you can sprang your ankle the ball is to hard and what if you have metal cleats and you slide into the catcher that could damage the catchers leg.
The answer is pitcher :)
Catchers leg guards are the same for both sports
the most important position in softball is deffinatley first base.
"UT" is Utility Which means you can play any position.
The velocity of the softball that is pitched is fast enough to hit the catchers glove with a lot of force so it causes the catcher's hand to sting or hurt
All of them. But rotator cuffs usually go first for pitchers and knees for catchers.
The softball's acceleration is equal to its force divided by its mass: 25 / 0.5 = 50 meters per second squared.
The most important position in softball is 1st base and pitcher
No they are the same as any normal softball player playing there position
She played catcher.
same as baseball but with a bigger ball
You could technically, but a softball would not fit in a baseball glove. The slit in a baseball glove is a lot smaller than the opening in a softball catcher's mitt. It would be very hard to actually catch the ball with a baseball catcher's mitt
