Lefty Catchers?

I’m trying to find out how many current, or recent, left-hand throwing MLB players played catcher in college or in high school. The only one I know of so far is Joe Kennedy of the Oakland A’s. If you know of any others, please list them in the comments. I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

    lists all left-handed catchers, if that’s any help…

    Wow. Great link, JF. Since 1925, there have been only four left handed catchers in the bigs, catching a total of 8 games, and one of them was really a pitcher who didn’t actually play in the game.

    That link also helps answer JC’s question, as it links this article that mentions Randy Johnson as having caught.

    That’s better than my Googling, which turned up one guy, Babe Ruth, and he’s hardly recent.
