1960'S NOKONA LEFT HANDED CATCHERS MITT. MODEL CM45. VIRTUALLY NO USE. FEELS GREAT ON THE HAND. PLENTY OF LIFE IN IT IF YOU WANTED TO USE IT TODAY.
Interesting article. I am left-handed, and never gave a thought to catching from little league thru college, because there was never a left-handed catchers mitt to give it a try. Most kids don’t start out to be a catcher. They usually give it a try and then find out they either like it, they are good at it, or it is the only position open to play. So no youth team is going to invest in a left handed catchers mitt on the off-chance that a lefty will come along and actually end up as a catcher. Very few lefty’s would spend their personal money on a left-handed catchers mitt until they knew they liked the position or found out they were good at it. Which will never happen since they will never get a chance to try the position without a mitt (kind of like the age old chicken vs. egg argument)

When I was living in the baseball mecca of Arizona, I searched the valley far and wide to try to find an adults left handed catchers mitt. My son was a pitcher, and started throwing too hard to catch with my regular gloves.
I couldn’t find one.
