Reply to "Catcher height"

You ask an interesting question, Adam. When height is discussed, players are almost always worried about not being tall enough. You're potentially playing a position where being too tall can be a disadvantage. My son was worried about not being tall enough, and was talking about it with a friend who played MLB baseball. The friend told my son that he was already as tall as Mike Lieberthal, Paul LoDuca, Brad Ausmus and several others. He then said that he needed to worry about being as good as them, not as tall as them. If you look at it from your perspective, you'll see that you will likely be as tall as Sandy Alomar, Benito Santiago, Mike Matheny, and several more as tall as them. Just like my son, worry about being as good as them, not about being as tall as them.
