That's a weird subject but I wanted to ask the catching gurus a question. DD is on an new team and one of the catchers is so quick to pull the ball in and to her hand to throw a runner back to first or third that she eliminates the chance for frame. This weekend 3-4 times one of our catchers pulled balls off the "black", before the ump even called ball or strike, and tried to force a runner back to a base.
This is new to me. Last 5 years the catcher would frame the pitch for a split second then look a runner back. It's almost like the catcher decides it's a ball then pulls it off the plate. I trust catchers as they know the zone but a few of the pitches were clearly strikes. Do ump's hold back on calling strikes if the catchers pull the ball back too fast?
