Ambidextrous pitchers are very hard to come by these days, let alone stay committed with it for quite a long time… but doing both switch-pitching, and switch-hitting at the same time? Now that is pretty much out of this world. But, nope, not anymore! Because in Japan, we have Mizuki Akatsuka (19 years of age) that can do all of that. Akatsuka is in college right now (first-year student), currently attending in Rikkyo University that is located in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan.
