Only long term, career LEFT-HANDED throwing catcher ever in the majors. [See Left-Handed Throwing Catchers List.] Clements was a squat, powerful man who hit home runs when they were a rarity. He caught 105 games in 1892, and was the last lefthanded catcher to play regularly. Righthanded batters learned to duck when a runner broke for second; Clements simply fired away.
