Have a catch

In Definally on June 17, 2011 at 10:00 am

A spirited discussion arose Wednesday night between famous author/cousin Howard Megdal and his advance team (Definally.) over whether or not throwing a ball back and forth constitutes “having a catch.”

Despite being both familiar with words and a typically reliable source for information regarding all things baseball, Megdal suggested that if we wanted to cut our dinner short and skip his scheduled speaking engagement, we could find the necessary equipment for “having a catch” in the trunk of his car. Misinformed on two counts (Megdal’s trunk lacked a ball), Definally. feels the need to set the record straight.

Notwithstanding what Megdal (and Ray Kinsella) would have us believe, one (two or more, actually) plays catch, or plays a game of catch. If something has a catch, it fastens (like the aforementioned trunk) or it has a complication (being ready to play, except for one minor detail…).
