    Re: Switch Hitter vs. Switch Pitcher

    That would increase his pitch total from around 120 to 240.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Switch Hitter vs. Switch Pitcher

    He is a legit prospect... That would be pretty amazing to see a switch pitcher in the bigs. I think it has happened at least once before.

    Ed Servias, Venditte's college coach, claims that the umps got it wrong. He says that the pitcher has to declare when he toes the rubber, then the batter can decide. BTW, Servias is a former assistant coach at Iowa State.

    This is the only solution that makes sense. I'm surprised it played out the way it did. I'd be ****** as hell if I was that batter.
