there aren't even hitters with those letters in any part of their name (first or last) in that order.


I know at one point Rickey Henderson was the only player in the major leagues that threw left-handed and batted (only) right-handed. Randy Johnson is another one, but I am counting only hitters. Anyone know of any players now that do this? Remember, only right-handed hitting.

Maybe Sheffield will have something to say about it.
I personally think that MLB needs to be aware of this situation and do everything in their power to develop young hitting Timmaaays.

Tim Moss was a speedy infielder for the Longhorns a few years back. I don't know if he ever got drafted or if he's in the minors anywhere near being called up, but if he is, we should definitely start a Tim Moss Countdown to the Majors in an effort to get a Tim in there.

Good Call ;-D Even though is not in the majors, I will give you credit for that one. Randy Johnson is another one.

Mike Hampton throws left and bats right I believe. And he *was* a good hitting pitcher.

There's probably more pitchers like that, because they learn to pitch lefty at a young age for lack of any natural lefties on their high school teams or whichever.
