n.— «There are also mindgames going on behind the plate. Catchers often try to pull in pitches that miss off the plate in an effort to get strikes called, a process called “framing.” That effort is, of course, helped by knowing how to be nice to umpires and get on their good side.» —“Baseball’s thankless position” by Ernest Bowker Vicksburg Post (Mississippi) Apr. 22, 2007.
