There's a pitcher in A ball...can apparently pitch effectively both RH and LH. Has a specially made glove that he can wear comfortably on both hands so he can switch from one to the other easily.
Can you imagine?

Video of the at-bat:
That poor batter didn't know what was going on.
Sounds like quite a difficulty for batters. Been wondering where I heard this before. But didn't. Just occurred to me. The A's or someone had a one-handed pitcher. Kept his glove on his stump till after he threw the ball, and then switched it onto his good hand. Something similar. Hope I get to, and would love to
see this ambidextrous pitcher. That would be something new
Yeah, I saw that video on the news. That's one for the ages.
I can't remember the name of the one-armed pitcher, but I know he spent some time in New York. I don't think he was in Oakland, but may have been with the Angels. It's a pretty simple name, as I recall.
That's amazing. To have that level of proficiency with either hand or arm is amazing. And that glove. Six fingers and two webbings. What a trip. Thanks for sharing this.
greg harris for the red sox a while back could pitch with both arms
He could...but he didn't until just before he retired. Wasn't allowed to (how stupid is that?). And he walked the one batter he faced from the other side of the mound, if I'm remembering right.
