I think left handers CAN PLAY CATCHER AND THROW WELL BUT

THERE IS No Left handed catchers in major league ?

They say they cant throw to third base because the batters in  the way ?

They say lefties are only good for first base and pitching and out field?

BABE RUTH WAS A LEFT HANDED CATCHER for a while as stated in the below article  .

The throw to third is one issue.  The throw to second is a bigger one.  Granted righties face this with left handed batters too.

I think that a couple of things have happened.
1. There are a lot of righties compared to lefties.
2. From a young age lefties are groomed to first base and pitching and playing the outfield when not pitching.
3. Most catchers, in general, have cannon arms, so a lefty with a cannon is more valuable to an MLB club if you can successfully convert them to pitching.  Right now you can make millions in the MLB with a losing record and a strong left arm.

Also, maybe Rawlings can't find their left handed catchers glove mold... Cheesy

In baseball, the catcher requires a separate skill set that can be improved by running a series of baseball catcher drills at your next practice. This article includes three catcher drills that teach catchers how to block errant pitches, reduce their flinching at oncoming pitches, and work on their long haul throws towards potentially stolen bases. cricinfo

I like baseball because its similar to Cricket. The ability to throw out potential base stealers is an important responsibility of the catcher. Although most bases are stolen off the pitcher, a weak armed or slow reacting catcher will make the job quite easy no matter what the pitcher does to hold runners close to base.Cricinfo
