The NCAA Double-A Zone blog had an entry recently asking about why catchers are always right-handed. It is interesting that there has not been a left-handed catcher in the Majors in 20 years with really no logical reason for it. Mike Squires, a left-hander who caught two innings for the White Sox in 1980 and now scouts for the Reds, has the best reason. "You’re talking about old-timers who don’t want to change," he told the NY Times. "I always wanted to be a catcher growing up. But I was not allowed to."
Why do you think that is? Is it tradition to move lefties to other positions at lower levels? Does anyone know of a left-handed college catcher?
