Catching is hard enough on the human body as it is. You have to put on all that heavy, oppressive gear, squat on those aching knees, take foul tips off the fingers and shoulders, crab around for balls off the plate and in the dirt, leap up and down constantly to make high-pressure throws, and run down the line on every infield grounder to back up first base---not to mention, you know, have guys throw baseballs at you as hard as they can. It's also your job to suggest what sort of baseball they should throw: Fastball?
