If a kid throws left-handed and has a great shoulder, chances are that he'll learn to pitch rather then catch.

That being said, I've never quite bought this. Clearly catchers do manage to throw when a left-handed guy is up, and I've always found it hard to believe it would be a big deal in practice. But at least when I was a kid, they definitely discouraged any lefty from trying to play catcher.
