Rob Kaminsky is naturally right-handed, but pitches left-handed and dominated in high school. He has a nasty curveball with velocity. A solid LHP, he is compared with Sandy Koufax, who was also Jewish. 

The youngest of Alan and Donna Kaminsky’s three children, Robert excelled in Little League, switch-hitting and sometimes throwing lefty, sometimes righty.
