Pitchers and catchers are to summer-league baseball what oil is to the world market at the moment.
Scarce and in demand.
That said, Post 95 Senior American Legion baseball coach Steve Hosick has to feel like a Saudi Arabian prince right now, as his roster features an unprecedented reserve of pitchers and catchers.
"We have at least eight pretty salty pitchers right now," said Hosick as he scanned his roster last Thursday. "And we've got at least three guys who can catch for us."
Potential battery combinations will, indeed, be numerous for the Cardinals.
