The pithcer would probably go to his better arm. If for soem reason he's equally good he'll force the batter to work w/ his weak side.

The batter would have to declare first.....he would have to get in the box before the pitcher stepped on the rubber.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.

A couple of good questions.

A little off topic, but professional bowlers can switch hands during a game with no penalty, but it's against the rules in the amatuer ranks. Just a random observation.

No and no, once you declare which side you will be pitching/hitting from you can't change during an at bat.
