Aubrey McCarty is a switch hitter and both handed pitcher (BHP) recruited to play for top-ranked Vanderbilt University. McCarty is listed on the 2015 Vandy roster as an infielder and redshirt freshman. He chose Vanderbilt for "great academics and baseball program's success."

"Aubrey is without question, one of the more unique players that we have had in our program. He hits from both sides, has the ability to throw from both sides, pitches and can play several positions. We will probably try and scale down much of this so he can settle in as a hitter during his freshman year. Aubrey has an exciting upside to his game." 
Coach Tim Corbin, Vanderbilt University

As a high school pitcher, McCarty's velocity reached 89 mph  (Perfect Game 6/29/2012). Throws a fastball, cutter, curveball and changeup from both sides (watch video). At 6'3", McCarty also plays first base. 

As a 16-year-old, his throwing velocity topped out at 86 mph right-handed and 83 mph left-handed. 

McCarty started pitching both ways when he was 11-years-old. He is naturally left-handed, but learned to play baseball right-handed. When he was 13 or 14, he hurt his right arm, so he worked hard on throwing left-handed. Now he throws well with either arm. He committed to play for Vanderbilt as a two way player. Watch the interview

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, who is a rare ambidextrous pitcher, led the Packers with a 9-2 record and a 2.86 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 58.2 innings last season (2012). Moultrie Observer
