The Amazing Switch-pitcher!

courtesy here.

The enigmatic Pat Venditte will follow CC Sabathia in the matinee affair at 1:05 against the Braves. Unfortunately, that game will only be televised on MLB.tv.

Sergio Mitre pitches under the lights in Tampa against the Jays. That game will be televised on YES at 7:05.

(The famous video of Venditte facing a switch-hitter for the first time. The rules now state Venditte has to declare first which hand he'll pitch from.)
