Switch-pitcher Venditte on MLB debut


A Switch Pitcher? The Nashville Sounds Have One, And His 6-Fingered Glove Is Awesome 

By EMIL MOFFATT | nashvillepublicradio.org, May 2015

Being ambidextrous in baseball is not uncommon. Nearly every major league team has at least one switch hitter. But pitching with both arms? There has only been one player before who's done that: Greg Harris.
The date is etched in Harris’s memory. It was September 28, 1995.
“That was the day I threw left-handed, right-handed in Montreal against Cincinnati,” Harris says from his home in California.
 No pitcher in the modern era had thrown with both arms in a big league game.  But it was just one inning at the very end of Harris’s career.
Venditte, on the other hand, wants to become the first full-time switch pitcher.
