Why he started pitching with both arms

Nick was about two years old when he started throwing wiffle balls playing catch with his dad.
Over time he learned to throw the balls back with both hands for fun.

His dad said that his son liked to catch the ball with his dominant right hand, so he bought Nick a glove for a lefty.

As Nick kept catching with the lefty glove, he eventually learned to throw the ball back with his left hand.

At nine, he had more controll with his right hand, but threw harder left-handed.

His goal is to play college baseball and pitch with both hands.
