People may argue that the job of baseball pitcher, quarterback or hockey goalie are the hardest sports jobs. I disagree it has to be a MLB catcher. Unlike pitchers and quarterbacks they play every day, every play and unlike goalies they perform many functions.
They need intelligence and teamwork to be able to call the game and work as a unit with a variety of pitchers. They get beat up physically on almost every play and need to squat for long periods of time. They get hit by balls and bats and have the umpire breathing down their neck. Oh and they should be able to hit. I don’t see how they can walk after a game. It’s a tough job, tell this guy he’s not as tough as a goalie.
