So what are reasons for NOT having a lefty catch?
Take a glance thru other lefty catcher threads here on dfp there is a list of top notch D1 & other lefty catchers!Two downsides are:
1. The tag play at the plate; glove hand has to reach across body for the tag. Really tricky set-up on a throw from RF.
2. Catcher throwing to 3b on a steal- that throwing lane is reduced IF its a right handed batter.
IDK if these are a deal breaker; maybe at a high level. I will take a agile cat like LH catcher with a rifle anytime and live with the two scenarios.
What is the highest level LH catcher you have seen? Are there any D1 catchers out there?
Thanks for the tip on the thread. My DD plays 13U and I umpire HS and USSSA. I have not seen a lefty catcher in quite some time.Take a glance thru other lefty catcher threads here on dfp there is a list of top notch D1 & other lefty catchers!
