Ed Tseng interviews Pat Venditte

Ed Tseng interviews Yankee pitcher, Pat Venditte, the only ambidextrous pitcher (switch-pitcher) in professional baseball.http://www.edtseng.com

Venditte started throwing with both arms when he was three years old. This interview was in 2010 when Venditte was pitching for the Trenton Thunder. He talks about the mental aspect of pitching.

  1. You always learn something from a Pat Venditte interview. His pitching is minor league, but his perspective is world class.

    A few days ago, on Aug. 10, 2014, he lost the game and the Scranton Times-Tribune got some quotes that you never hear from typical pitchers.

    “You can’t throw sliders that don’t break,” Venditte seethed. “Tonight wasn’t bad luck. It was poor execution. There was nothing more to it than that.”

    "I was in the position I wanted to be in. Then 0-1, to hang a slider, that’s all there is to it. Bad execution on my part.”

    There's no money in talk like that--only great baseball.
