I'm not aware of any lefties who have played these positions regularly, but there have been situations where left-handers played them in emergency situations. Don Mattingly had to substitute at third base for the Yankees in the late 80's when their regular third baseman was hurt. Mike Squires (who like Mattingly, usually played first base) caught for the White Sox once in the early 80's.

What is the purpose of a designated runner in baseball?

Generally the designated runner is to be used for the catcher when there are two outs, sometimes the number of outs is not important. The PURPOSE of the rule is to allow the catcher to put his equipment on sooner and speed up the game. Some leagues use the designated runner for both the pitchers and catchers. This allows the pitcher and catcher to also rest. In addition it gives a player the opportunity to participate who is not in the line-up.
