imagine if Randy Johnson were a switch pitcher. Just switching gloves left and right. Wow. That would be godly.

Bert Campanaris was a switch pitcher in the minors, and there are a few switch pitchers in the minors right now.

I can actually throw with either arm, although it's a bad combination. My right arm is all heat and my left is all accuracy. So I could paint the corners but get hit, or blow them by everyone and about every third hitter I'd nail.

Not exactly effective enough. :-b

Even had a special glove made that he could put on either hand.

Just combine your arms! Can't be that hard, right? :-D

so what happens when a switch hitter faces a switch pitcher? who has to declare first?
