Is that because there's some inherent disadvantage or has it just worked out like that?
I can't imagine that the footwork is all that different for either hand to throw to 2nd/3rd/home. I've played both as a RH and never felt "uncomfortable" out there.
I cannot imagine it makes much difference. The only thing I can think of is that your glove hand is already pointed toward the foul line if you field righty in RF and lefty in LF, but that cannot matter much because you still need to get your glove hand the other way for balls hit to your right (in RF).
