Being left-handed in baseball, except in rare cases, means exclusion from the position of catcher. This is due in large part to the game's counterclockwise flow. There have only been 28 left-handed throwing players who caught in at least 1 defensive inning. Did you know that Sy Sutcliffe is one of those rare left-handed catchers?
