I'm talking about an ambidextrous pitcher!
His name is Pat Venditte, he's 23, and he's pro baseball's only ambidextrous pitcher. This living piece of history is more than a YouTube star; he's throwing almost daily for the Charleston RiverDogs, the Yankees' Single-A club. And he's not just throwing: He's blowing through hitters like a Cub Scout through Skittles. At one point in April, the closer's ERA was 0.00 in 6 1/3 innings, and he hadn't blown a save in five games.
That we such an awesome site to see a guy switching between his right and left arm.(hehehehe That sounds dirty for some reason.)
There are a lot of "never befores" with Venditte. The pitching coach has to file two reports: Venditte the lefty and Venditte the righty. And he should; they're two different pitchers. The righty has a 90 mph fastball, a curve and a nice change. The lefty comes sidearm and has a murderous slider and a change. He's a five-pitch pitcher! Once, in Little League, the other team's coach came up to Pat Sr. and said, "Your twins pitched a heck of a game."
Of course the Yankee's have him in their system so that automatically docks awesomeness points away from you and adds douchebaggery points a little and whether he can actually make it the the majors is another question as well but seeing a guy switch arms in the middle of an inning will be an interesting sight.
