I agree with you, the kid is without a doubt a "ballplayer." As a former scout, the left handed hitting catcher with power is something that you don't see often. It is a rare commodity indeed.
Thank you, FD!
The Great Jack Sharp's star catcher suffered an injury that needed to heal for a few games. He temporarily used one of his power hitting lefties that could put'em out even though he needed some help with proper blocking technique.
An opposing coach/ex-major leaguer in the stands commented on how he had lost respect for JS because of using a lefty behind the plate.
If you’re athletic, intelligent, and committed you can usually be successful.
