Very Few Pitchers Were Ambidextrous

Manitowoc Herald-Times 21 May 1923

Baseball History Records Three Twirlers Who Could Use Either Hand in Playing.

Followers of baseball ofttimes have heard about the type of hurler who could pitch a fast ball with either hand and make it curve.

However, few have been in action, and these freak hurlers are seldom seen in organized ball. 

Actually, there were a number of good ambidextrous pitchers, 
but they played in local leagues - not in pro baseball.
