This article has zero to do with the Pirates, unless they draft the guy.
The New York Times is running an article on Creighton University’s Pat Venditte who is a switch pitcher. Yes a switch pitcher. He is a truly ambidextrous pitcher I heard about from a Northern Iowa game recently.
The Creighton Junior is getting some attention from MLB scouts as he switches hads with his specially made glove depending on the batter he is facing.
A good point brought up is what happens when a switch hitter steps in?
Should the Pirates consider drafting this kid? He could be the teams 4 and 5 starter in the future. They would only need 11 pitchers heading north. I know, he is a reliever but 4 and 5 starter was funnier than lefty and righty setup man.
