The catcher is the position of the man who sits behind home-plate. He wears gear consisting of a cup, chest guard, mask, and leg protectors. The catcher also has a specific type of mitt made just for catching. The main role of the catcher is to call the pitches the pitcher should throw and catch them once they have been thrown. For example, is the catcher gives the number 2 and points to the side, that is a signal for the pitcher to throw a two-seam fastball and to have it off to the selected side (those signals do vary by team). I hope this helps. Any other questions related to Baseball, just ask.
A catcher is stationed behind the batter and in front of the umpire. His job is to tell the pitcher what kind of pitch to throw, and then catch the pitch. He is also responsible for throwing runners out who are trying to steal bases.
The catcher as a fielding position was a required one in early baseball, as otherwise there was no way to continue the pitching cycle. In sandlot games, a parent or other person may play catcher for both teams.
