    Playing catch vs have a catch

    I saw a poll on Twitter asking what phrase you use. I grew up always asking my friends if they wanted to play catch but I've heard people use the phrase have a catch. Curious what u used and if it's a regional thing like soda vs. Pop vs. Soda pop etc

    Playing catch. Have a catch sounds British to me, proper grammar and such.

    In Chicago, it’s Play Catch.

    Love the movie Field of Dreams except the “Have a Catch” line at the end.

    "Have a catch" sounds wrong somehow, and I agree vaguely British. Like in a pub someone might say,"Let's have a sing" when they want everyone to sing a song.

    Mac from Philadelphia uses the phrase have a catch in his love letter to Chase Utley...
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    If you drink pop you probably play catch, if you drink soda you probably have a catch.

    I won't speak for all of new England, my regional king status isn't yet recognized, but I never heard the term pop until I met someone from the Midwest, and I've never heard someone from these 6 states wanting to have a catch. I grew up in rural Maine and I've lived in pompous coastal CT for over a decade now many differences in the areas but terminology for most things is remarkably similar.

    I live in southern Illinois, and people say soda here. From my experiences people I’ve met from the northern part of the state say pop.
