Left Handed Catchers Mitt

A left handed catchers mitt is a rare piece of equipment on a professional baseball field, but not on a little league diamond. Baseball is a sport of common sense and oddities.  One of the most noticeable aspects of the game is the limited positions for left handed players. This is especially true at the major league level. Infielders on the left side of the field are predominantly right handed. This is because it is easier and quicker to throw to first base with the right hand. Plus, they often catch the ball going to their right. Thus, a fielder will be able to plant their back foot when catching the ball before throwing. That is not the case for catchers using a left handed catchers mitt. Conversely, this does not always apply for first basemen,. They are in close proximity to first when catching a grounder. And, this problem never applies to outfielders who can position themselves before making any play, including getting a running start. However, even though pro catchers have the same problem as infielders, a left handed catchers mitt can be a real advantage on many youth league teams.

Lefty Catcher's Gloves

Lefty catcher's gloves are sometimes hard to find. But, we have several models available. Dependable athletic catchers with solid ball handling skills are difficult to find at the youth league level. So, left handed players are always an option for the catching position. Base running rules are different at the youth league level, and especially stealing rules. Lefty catchers can manage well when they have an excellent left handed catchers mitt. They need one that helps them secure a thrown pitch before stepping out of the box to throw. The only problem they have is that there are so many more righty hitters who are standing in the batters box while they attempt to throw from behind the plate. As a result, a left handed catchers mitt will not be part of the necessary equipment for a professional baseball team. This is true unless one of the warm-up catchers just happens to be lefty. However, a youth team should always have a lefty catcher's glove to allow for the flexibility to use your players with the best throwing arms behind the plate.
