My son plays baseball. He’s a catcher. As a catcher, he is charged with seeing the entire field of play, and calling actions out to his teammates based on his predictions of what is going down. He’s told me before, “Dad I have a choice, I either catch the game they throw me, or I make them throw the game I want to catch.” If he waits to figure out what he’s going to do if the guy on first tries to steal on the pitch once the guy has started to run. He’ll never stop them from trying to steal. But if he learns the patterns a runner executes when they intend to steal, calls a pitchout, has the shortstop move over to 2nd at the right time. He’ll look like the hero and get the runner out.
