Caught catchers are in high demand.
For a number of reasons, catching a cat is a highly coveted career.
But they’re also extremely labor intensive.
Catching a cat in a certain time frame requires a lot of coordination and planning.
It also requires a level of skill.
“Catch a cat, you’re going to catch a cat,” says Bob Wiesner, a senior writer at ESPN The Magazine.
Wiesner’s team has put together a database of the most-caught catches in NBA history, and it’s a fascinating read.
The database includes everything from catches of a single cat to catches of multiple cats, including a team-wide record for catches of the same cat.
Each year, Wies, who’s also the senior writer for ESPN The magazine, scours the web to compile data.
The goal is to collect data that can help players and coaches identify players with more value in catching catchers.
The database also includes stats on how many catchers have been caught by a single team, and how many teams have caught a cat.
It also includes statistics on how often a player has caught a specific cat, such as how often they’ve caught a black cat.
“We’ve identified a few players that really, really deserve to be on that list,” Wies said.
“We know how valuable they are to their teams.
So we want to put that into the database.”
Wies said that when the data is sorted by season, the most prolific catches are in the second half of the season, which is typically the time of year when the majority of catchers spend most of their time in the cage.
