JT McDonnell, from San Marino, practiced throwing left-handed when he was about nine and it just became natural. Before that, his parents thought he was right-handed.
To gain an advantage, he pitches left-handed to lefties and right-handed to righties. This is the same strategy used by minor league pitcher Pat Venditte.
Plus, JT throws a good curveball from both sides.
Coach Mack Paciorek likes JTs versatility, it gives him an advantage and it's something that other teams can't plan for in a game. He also said that JT is an excellent student.
