Catcher’s Complicated Signals To Pitcher Really Just Rock-Paper-Scissors Game

Published Friday, September 14th, 2018

In an interview following last night’s win, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey revealed that his complicated signals to the pitcher were really just a simple game of rock-paper-scissors. Posey disclosed the information when asked whether he and pitcher Madison Bumgarner had any sort of elaborate strategy for getting opponents to strike out.

“If I win," he explained, "Madison throws a fastball down the center of the plate. If Madison wins, he’ll just surprise me with a curveball or a slider or something. We usually just play one game, but if it’s a high-stakes throw, we’ll go best two out of three.”

Posey also admitted that when he’s at bat, he flips a coin before each pitch to decide which ones to swing on.
