Switch Pitcher – The Future of Baseball

Somehow I don’t think we’ll see Johan Santana throwing the change up from the right side or Brandon Webb develop a lefty power sinker. That said, I’ve long wondered why there aren’t ANY switch pitchers. I would think they’d only have to develop a fastball they can keep down and a looping curve.

Someone sent me this link of a switch pitcher in a minor league baseball game. The punch line here is that he’s going up against a switch hitter – place your bets.

Check out the video on YouTube –

You can also click here to buy a pitching machine on eBay so you’ll never get caught off guard by a switch pitcher!
