    What is the difference between the stretch position and the set position? I hear those terms used interchangeably and I’m not sure if this is accurate.

      The stretch position is when the pitcher is bending over taking signs from the catcher with his hands separated and one of them down at his side prior to coming to the set position where he brings his hands together and comes to a discernable stop.  At this moment, he now has the permission to pitch the ball.   Since these motions connect with each other, the terms have been used interchangeably by some.
