As I read it they must wear a catcher's mitt.

The catcher may not substitute a fielder's glove or a first baseman's mitt for a catcher's mitt during the progress of the game or on any individual play.

The LL version of the rule specifically says the catcher must use a catcher's mitt.

So why would some fool want to wear a fielder's glove or 1B mitt? They a fan of broken fingers?
