Is there a common secondary position for Catchers?
Lets find out !

Corners may be
Outfield could be
Mid infield a possibility

Starting in travel
My secondary position was 3rd a little.
Out field maybe 5 games literally :)

DD was a starting catcher until 8th grade when she made a phenom catch in foul territory, full layout. She was the starting Varsity C all 4 four years of HS but was a starting OF and backup C on her travel team. The same holds for college.

My daughter's secondary is SS then 3rd. Her arm keeps her on the left side. Her athleticism is why she plays SS.

Mine started at third when she was little, and then started catching more and more, almost exclusively. This year, it may be 50/50 3d and catcher.

DD's arm keeps her at 3rd but if she is not catching she LOVES playing 1st.
Do think both corners are a hot box.
First touches the ball more.
That said brings the delema
Would we rather have the arm at 3rd?
Or the glove at first?
Hmmm i like both options! :)

2nd year 14u DD is a utility. Last fall she played middle infield, this summer she played outfield, and this year it's looking like the corners. She'll play anywhere.

In 10U, I think my DD played every position at some point (including P during her final rec games). At 12U, her secondary position was 1B, and it's stayed that way until now, with the exception of 2 innings at 3B during her freshman year of HS.
