The best catcher is JORGE POSADA!
For a middle teen and high school catcher good is 1.7 seconds.
From the time the catcher touches the ball til the ball reaches 2nd for a good catcher is 1.6 to 1.7 seconds.
If the softball was measured in time then check you stop watch. The ball speed at a softball pitching distance would be traveling several hundred miles per hour at time stated. A very fast softball pitcher will have a release to catcher time around .5 seconds.

NO it is not necessary for girls that play softball to wear a pelvic protector.Wearing one is entirely up to the girl. If she feels as though she is comfortable enough with her skills (catching or even quickness to dodge a ball in some cases) then she should not feel worried. There is a small chance of doing permanent damage if one is not worn.A catcher may have a higher chance of getting hit in that area because the catcher and pitcher usually the most involved in the game, and the catcher is squatting for most of the time.(I have been a softball catcher for many years now, and I have not gotten hit in the pelvic area.)
If you are unsure that you will make it in time before the catcher gets the ball and tags you. But if you are certain, you can just run over if. But as long as you touch the plate before, your safe.
There are nine players at a time on the field for fastpitch softball and ten for slow pitch softball
Catcher pop time is the time it takes for a catcher to come out of his crouch after receiving the pitch (like if he was going to try and throw a runner out at second base).
