Ambidextrous college pitchers

Has there ever been an ambidextrous pitcher in college baseball?

Yes, there have been a few switch pitchers in college baseball.


The best know switch pitcher is Pat Venditte, who played for Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. After a successful college career, Venditte was drafted as a pitcher by the New York Yankees. He is now playing in the minor leagues.

A few switch pitchers played for Division I colleges. Two successful ambidextrous pitchers played for Harvard University.

About Ambidextrous Pitchers

An ambidextrous pitcher has the ability to consistently throw strikes with either arm in baseball games. Most of the successful ambidextrous pitchers, start out as switch hitters.

Throwing with both arms is not a natural talent – like many people believe. It's a learned skill to throw both-handed. Ambidextrous pitching requires quality instruction, patience, and a lot of hard work.
