    Your take. Did the catcher duck intentionally?

    Oh, he most definitely ducked on purpose. You could see that his glove went up at first, almost to where the ball eventually went, before he dropped it to the dirt as if he was trying to block a curveball. He obviously saw where the ball was going and then got out of the way of it.

    My first instinct was that, with a runner on second, there's no way they did it on purpose. After all, it's pretty easy to get crossed up. But when I read the team was down 9-1 in Game 3 of the state championship at the time, yeah, I'd say it's pretty likely it was done on purpose.

    What's worse? The D_Ber or the one who posts on the D_B thread?

    Pern was kinda referring to himself in this case.
