A hurling player? (7)
I believe the answer is:
This might be a double definition.
'a hurling' is the first definition.
The definition and answer can be both acts as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's a link between them I don't understand?
'player?' is the second definition.
(I know that pitcher is a type of baseball player)
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for pitcher that I've seen before include "crock" , "Baseball thrower or water jug" , "able to hold a lot of beer" , "Vessel with a handle and spout" , "that can hold his drink" .)
