Left-handed catchers are rare but not unheard of. You'll have to order a glove online because most sporting goods stores only keep right-handed gloves in stock...I'd go for it. You might be great!

Do you think it's fair not to play a LEFTY catcher just because she's left handed. and one of the best catchers around?

Starting a lefty catcher does have disadvantages. She will have a harder time throwing out runners at third because she will have to clear the batter and then turn her body to throw. A right handed catcher can just clear the batter and already be in a good throwing position. Also, on a play at the plate lefties have to backhand the tag, which is very hard and often umpires have harder times seeing that type of tag being applied. If the girl you are talking about is the best catcher on the team, then she should start. But if there is an equal player in a right hander, it makes more sense to start her.

What does a catcher do in baseball?

The catcher is the position of the man who sits behind home-plate. He wears gear consisting of a cup, chest guard, mask, and leg protectors. The catcher also has a specific type of mitt made just for catching. The main role of the catcher is to call the pitches the pitcher should throw and catch them once they have been thrown. For example, is the catcher gives the number 2 and points to the side, that is a signal for the pitcher to throw a two-seam fastball and to have it off to the selected side (those signals do vary by team). I hope this helps. Any other questions related to baseball, just ask.
