Standing While Catching


Damion Lozier from corinth asks:

Does a catcher have to squat or can he be standing behind the plate when receiving a live pitch during an at bat?

The catcher does not have to squat and can be standing behind the plate if he so wishes. The reason catchers squat is so that they can catch the ball in the strike zone.
