This is. I always wished the Sox would let Harris throw from the other side. Thought they were fuddy-duddies for not.
I've been able to train myself to throw a football pretty well with both arms, but there's a lot more mechanics involved in pitching. There's also a lot more talent required to get a professional contract.
The funniest aspect of the story might be the rule they made up to deal with the switch pitcher-switch hitter showdowns.
