Meet the ambidextrous Mr. Mellott - one of the players from the IMG Wood Bat League

Let me introduce you to Dalton Mellott. Dalton is a 16 year old who loves baseball, and happens to be pretty darn good at it too. This summer, Dalton has been spending his time playing in the IMG Wood Bat League, where he plays for the IMG Conquistadors.
Mellott describes himself as a pitcher and a middle infielder. But if you are filling in the box score when he is on the mound, you might want to pay extra close attention to what hand he is using. Yes, that's right, Mellott is ambidextrous.
"I am a little bit better with my right hand than my left, but I do pitch with both."
Indeed he is better with his right, Mellott has been clocked throwing at 88 miles-per-hour with that hand, rather than 75 miles-per-hour with his left. Either way, it's likely that he will get you out.
