The first and last duty of the lover of the game of baseball, whether in the stands or on the field, is the same as that of the lover of life itself: to pay attention to it. When it comes to the position of catcher, as all but fools and shortstops will freely acknowledge, this solemn requirement is doubled.
Nine men out and they mostly look alike. Who on the field looks different? The catcher. His shin guards extend over the top of his knees and his chest protector covers shoulders to waist. Redrafting the shoulders to create the chest protector actually makes the sewing easier.
This was the busiest green background but it had to be included because of the orange eyes. Finding a skin tone that showed up against it was tough. This is the only solid I used because even the "tone on tones" faded into the busy green print. He should have a face mask but I couldn't get one to work. It always looked like he had long hair. I gave him a ball instead although it doesn't show up well against the light skin tone.
Working out these three players has been an enjoyable exercise. The minor variations should make the quilt more engaging.
Now for a few southpaws.
Enjoy the day, Ann
