Nichols Law Of Catcher Defense
From BR Bullpen
Originally written by Sherri Nichols on rec.sport.baseball sometime prior to 1992, Nichols' Law of Catcher Defense states that a catcher's defensive reputation is inversely proportional to their offensive abilities. Therefore light-hitting catchers get good defensive reputations and top hitters like Ted Simmons wind up with lousy reputations. One can note that many catchers have lost a reputation for glovework once they began hitting better and that the opposite is also true, further reinforcing Nichols' Law.
