Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com claims that there is a catcher shortage in the majors.
Various plans in place to remedy this situation:
1) Work with our top scientists to develop alternative forms of baseball catchers
2) Institute a conscription system that would require 1 out of every 1000 American males to attempt to play catcher or serve an equivalent time in the military
3) Lower protective tariffs that were imposed on catcher in the 1960s under the terms of the Triandos-Roseboro Act.
