Because where and how the pitcher throws the ball has a lot to do with where and how hard the batter hits it.
If the pitcher is throwing the ball on the corners of the plate, moving the ball up and down in the strike zone, and changing speeds generally the batter will not hit as hard as the pitcher who throws the ball, no matter how hard, over the middle of the plate.
The defense will usually set its positions based on how a pitcher is going to pitch to a batter. If the defense plays a batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws a pitch on the outside corner at the knees, the batter is usually going to hit that ball to the opposite field, maybe sometimes up the middle. If the defense is playing the batter to the opposite field and the pitcher throws the ball belt high over the inside half of the plate, chances are the batter will hit the ball very hard and pull the ball away from where the defense is setup.

Arguably the pitcher is the most important defensive player because if, in a perfect world, they do not let anyone even hit the ball, they are doing all of the defensive work. The other players, besides the catcher, wouldn't even have to be there. Of course this is just theoretical and even in a perfect game, the pitcher heavily relies on the entire team behind (or in front, in terms of the catcher) him/her.
Baseball is an odd sport in that the defensive team has the only opportunity to score points. The pitcher has the single most important offensive position in the game. If the pitcher does not succeed in his goal of getting the ball past the batter, then the other members of the offense must "take up the slack." However, the defensive batter has the only position that can score. If you are in the dugout, then the most important player to you is the batter. If you are in the field, then the most important player is the pitcher. If you have a bat in your hand, then you better be sure the most important player is you.
The pitcher in baseball at all levels of the game is vital to the defensive of the team. This holds true for youth baseball, college and professional baseball as well. Generally speaking the pitcher is the most important defensive player because he is involved with every single play in the inning pitched. The same is true for the team catcher, however, the pitcher must throw his pitch in a manner that prevents a batter from getting on base. If a pitcher cannot make most batters draw a strike or have the batter hit the ball to one of his teammates then the defense is in trouble.
