Carafe vs. Pitcher

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Carafe and Pitcher is that the Carafe is a container used for serving wine and other drinks and Pitcher is a the player responsible for throwing (“pitching”) the ball to the batters in a game of baseball or softball

  • Carafe

    A carafe is a glass container without handles used for serving wine and other drinks. Unlike the related decanter, carafes do not include stoppers.

    Coffee pots included in coffee makers are also referred to as carafes in American English.

    In France, carafes are commonly used to serve water. To order a carafe d’eau (“carafe of water”) is to request to be served (free) tap water rather than bottled water at a cost.

    In Greece, in tavernas or similar establishments, carafes are normally used to serve draught wine.

  • Pitcher

    In baseball, the pitcher is the player who throws the baseball from the pitcher’s mound toward the catcher to begin each play, with the goal of retiring a batter, who attempts to either make contact with the pitched ball or draw a walk. In the numbering system used to record defensive plays, the pitcher is assigned the number 1. The pitcher is often considered the most important player on the defensive side of the game, and as such is situated at the right end of the defensive spectrum. There are many different types of pitchers, such as the starting pitcher, relief pitcher, middle reliever, lefty specialist, setup man, and the closer.

    Traditionally, the pitcher also bats. Starting in 1973 with the American League and spreading to further leagues throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the hitting duties of the pitcher have generally been given over to the position of designated hitter, a cause of some controversy. The National League in Major League Baseball and the Japanese Central League are among the remaining leagues that have not adopted the designated hitter position.
