Reply to "Pitcher wanting to catch"

As someone noted there are name catchers who didn't catch until college. Bob Boone was an All American third baseman at Stanford. The Phillies made him a catcher in the minors. Blake Swihart was drafted for his athleticism and moved to catcher in the minors. 

I've seen a few middle infielders and centerfielders moved to catcher in high school. They have the hands and the arm.

Pitching and catching? Not a good idea for the arm or the legs.
