Repack Haiku #294 (Benny Distefano)

A rare distinction
The last left handed catcher
Will we see again?
1989 Fleer #205 Benny Distefano
In the history of baseball, there have been very few backstops who threw left handed. When Distefano caught 3 games for the Pirates in 1989, he became the last known lefty to do so. Since he had to use a catching glove on his right hand, it forced him to catch balls backhanded.
