Best Answer

A hind catcher is the same thing as a catcher in Baseball. It is the person who plays behind the batter and catches the ball when it is missed or not struck at. I know the term was used regularly in the south in the fifties and earlier. I'm not sure if it is still in use there, but I think most places have dropped the "hind" and now simply use the term "catcher."

I am not sure of the origin of this term other than the fact that the catcher played behind or "hind" the home plate. I have seen one suggestion that the word "behind" was used to describe the position much in the same way you would say "in the field" to describe outfielders.

Why does the hind catcher tell the pitcher what to throw?

There is more than just one reason that the catcher calls the game. One reason is that most of the time the catcher is more familiar with the opposing hitters. Since the catcher is also aware of what pitches are working that day for his pitcher, it makes more sense for him to call for pitches that will keep the opposing hitters of balance. Many times the pitches are signalled in to the catcher from either his manager or pitching coach. This allows the pitcher to consentrate only on what his catcher is calling.
