Here’s What Happens When a Switch-Hitter Faces a Switch-Pitcher [Video]
If you're a baseball fan, you're familiar with the concept of a switch-hitter - a player who can bat both right and left-handed. It's a pretty unique skill, though it's not as unique as someone who is able to throw equally well with both hands. The Toronto Blue Jays have found the elusive switch-pitcher, though, and his name is Pat Venditte.
Venditte even has a special glove that allows him to wear it on either hand, which means that he can switch back and forth between throwing left-handed and right-handed.
So what happens when a switch-pitcher faces a switch-hitter? A lot of confusion as it turns out.
Watch what happened when Venditte faced switch-hitter Antoan Richardson of the Pittsburgh Pirates in a recent spring training game.
