Konnor Pilkington switched from righty to lefty

Proof that one can change throwing arms at age 10

Ambidextrous pitcher adapts in rotation

Konnor Pilkington has provided Mississippi State with a southpaw option in its starting pitching rotation all season.
However, Pilkington has not always been left-handed. In fact, the freshman is ambidextrous and did not begin to primarily throw with his left hand until around the age of 10.
“When I was little I would throw a baseball right-handed,” Pilkington said. “I’d always hit right-handed too but one day I wanted to try something different so I just started throwing left-handed and got more comfortable throwing that way. It’s the same thing with hitting. I just wanted to be left-handed I guess.”

Note: Konnor is note actually an ambidextrous pitcher, he is a left-handed pitcher who is ambidextrous.
