Louden Conte is a starting shortstop who has the ability to pitch both ways - lefty and righty. As a typical middle infielder, he is naturally right-handed.
How he got starter throwing with both arms ...
Conte's attempt at ambidextrous pitching began four years ago, after he had surgery on his right shoulder. He started by tossing a tennis ball off a wall with his left hand, then used a rubber baseball to play catch with his father, Cal (Pa.) University baseball coach Mike Conte. And he pitched a whiffle ball to his younger brother, Payton. (triblive.com)

Gorman: Not all right for this lefty
Tuesday, April 28, 2015
Lefty Louden Conte struck out a pair of left-handed hitters before Nick Damico signaled for right-handed relief.
The California coach called a timeout and brought a mitt out for his trip to the mound.
So Conte could change.
The 6-foot, 180-pound junior then scored another strikeout to complete an incredible feat: Conte pitched with both hands in the fifth and final inning of a 13-1 Section 1-A victory Monday at West Greene.
In his first pitching appearance this season, Conte tossed a three-hitter and struck out seven while pitching 4 1⁄3 innings righty and 2⁄3 lefty.
Call him a switch-pitcher.
“I've been working hard at it. It was fun to finally get out there on the mound,” Conte said. “At first, a lot of people didn't realize that I actually turned around and went lefty.”
