Pitcher Switch Pitches & Throws With Other Arm During Game… The Most UNBELIEVABLE Thing EVER In Baseball

In 2008, fans of Staten Island Yankees who is a minor affiliate team of the major league baseball powerhouse the New York Yankees, just witnessed history. Pitcher Pat Venditte was attempting to secure the game’s final out against the Brooklyn Cyclones’s while facing batter Ralph Henriquez. One thing occurred during the whole process, where the switch hitting Henriquez couldn’t decide what side of the plate he wanted to hit from. After several minutes of both teams arguing at each other, this is what happened! You will have to see the video to actually fully understand it.

A couple weeks later, the Professional Baseball Umpire Corporation released the “The Pat Venditte Rule” which states this:
A switch-pitcher must visibly indicate which hand he intends to throw with prior to each batter, and cannot switch during that specific at-bat. However, if a team were to substitute the right-handed Miguel Cabrera for the left-handed David Ortiz, the pitcher could change his throwing arm accordingly. Venditte literally change the game of baseball in the matter of minutes. I guess it really helps to be an ambidextrous pitcher, so all you parents make sure you teach your kids to throw with both hands.
