  • PREP BASEBALL: Who calls the pitches? (5/5)

    The art of catchers calling their own game at the high school level has become a rarity. Instead, most high schools have gone to the wristband approach. The catcher, who is wearing a wristband, receives the sign from the bench, consults the band, and then relays the sign to the pitcher.

    Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, LaRue County and Meade County all use a similar approach, mainly working off a wristband to signal in pitches. North Hardin coaches signal in pitches as well. John Hardin is the only school which doesn’t have a coach signal in pitches.
