While the pitcher receives the accolades in the headlines, it is the catcher that runs the game. The catcher is an extension of the teams manager, calling pitches and directing traffic on the field. A catcher is the toughest position to play in baseball.

The player behind the dish stands and squats, throws the ball as many times as the pitcher while wearing it's gear in often 90 plus degree heat.

While reading the New York Times recently I found this great article on how to be a catcher. I did learn a few things so I thought you might as well.
