2 because if you get 2 technical fouls you're thrown out of the game
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.
Check out the link attached about Jim Hardy he holds the nfl-record of 8 interceptions thrown in a single game. A long long time ago.
10 By Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers
depends QB's: five QB's have thrown 7 td's
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 runners stay on base unless: if it's strike 3, out 3, the inning is over and runners leave the field and switch to defense as long as the game isn't over; if it's a wild pitch and not strike 3, out 3, the runners can advance at their own risk; if it's strike 3 and not out 3 and the catcher fails to catch the ball, all runners (including the batter) can run to the next base
The NFL record for passes intercepted in a single game is 8 thrown by Chicago Cardinals QB Jim Hardy in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles in 1950. The NCAA Division 1-A record for passes interception in a game is 9 and is held by John Reaves of Florida. The game was against Auburn in 1969.
This is a good question. If the catcher is in the base path when the runner is running home the runner will not be ejected and the point will be scored automatically. This is due to the fact that the only time the catcher can block home plate is when he has the ball, otherwise he must be out of the runners way.
The Tigers used 3 in a game on 10/6/09 against the Twins, but I'd guess that the record is 4 or 5.

Ivan Rodriguez broke Carlton Fisk's record on June 17, 2009, appearing in his 2,227th game as a catcher. Rodriguez earned the honor as a member of the Houston Astros against his former team, the Texas Rangers.
Pitch counts are spotty at best prior to the 1990s, but the record as far as we know is 74, by the Rockies' Aaron Cook on 7/25/07
At most there can be 13 players on the field at one time, if you include pitcher, catcher and the other 7 fielding postions. Plus adding the player that is up to bat and 3 base runners give you 13. At the minimum there are 10 players on the field when you take away the base runners.
In the history of Baseball, as of the 2012 Major League Baseball (MLB) season, 21 perfect games ("27 up, 27 down") have been thrown - 19 of which have been thrown in the Modern Era. Of these 21 perfect games thrown, none has been pitched with only 27 pitches being thrown. On record, the fewest pitches thrown in a perfect game was 74 pitches thrown by Addie Joss of the Cleveland Naps against the Chicago White Sox on October 2, 1908.
There are actually four different quarterbacks who hold that record. Brett Farve, Frank Filchock, Bobby Layne and Norm Van Brocklin all threw 6 interceptions in a single playoff game.
No, not unless the relief pitcher relinquishes his teams lead. Relief pitchers often enter games with runners on base. On occasion, some of those runners score. Those inherited runners scoring are charged to the prior pitcher(s) who allowed them to get on base. If the reliever holds the lead, even if some runners score, the reliever gets a save if he finishes the game. Oddly, a reliever can enter the game with a lead, with inherited runners on base, relinquish the lead (the other team ties the game or takes a lead), get a blown save and then win the game. If he relinquishes the lead and then in the other half of the inning or the next inning his team regains the lead or wins and he is the pitcher of record, he gets both a blown save and a victory. Rewarding ineptitude......
yes. anyone who disrespects any person of authority can be thrown out of the game.
