I love photographing catchers.  They are always so involved in the game.  A lot of what goes on the field involved them.  From calling pitches, blocking balls in the dirt, catching fouls, blocking the plate from a runner, settling a pitcher down, setting the defense and hopefully congratulating the pitcher on a job well done after the game.  Here are just a few of my favorite images from the season so far:

Catching the foul balls.

Trying to prevent a runner from scoring.

Successfully keeping the runner from scoring.

Keeping the ball in front of him.

Grabbing the pitch out of the dirt.

The everyday task of catching a pitch.

Keeping an eye on the runner straying far from second base.

Watching the runners after a pitch in the dirt.

Setting the defense.

Discussing things with the pitcher.

Backhanding a ball to the plate.

Taking a minute after a strike-out.

The congrats on a job well done after the game.

And occasionally they are still little boys that like to play in the dirt after warming up a pitcher.
