In baseball catchers are trained to snap the ball quickly back to the
strike zone if the pitch was a ball, in order to maximally influence the
umpire. I don't agree that such things are cheating. No one can stop
you from catching a ball in a certain way. And in every sport players
are not expected to incriminate themselves. I did that once in a
softball match (play fair, tell the runner on the opposing team he
missed a base). I got treated like I was a traitor.
