No, why should the batter be penalized for "staying alive" by fouling off pitches. The classic confrontation between pitcher and batter is the heart of Baseball.

Why does the hind catcher tell the pitcher what to throw?

There is more than just one reason that the catcher calls the game. One reason is that most of the time the catcher is more familiar with the opposing hitters. Since the catcher is also aware of what pitches are working that day for his pitcher, it makes more sense for him to call for pitches that will keep the opposing hitters of balance. Many times the pitches are signalled in to the catcher from either his manager or pitching coach. This allows the pitcher to consentrate only on what his catcher is calling.

When in the act of pitching to home plate the pitcher suddenly pitches to first base is that a balk?

Yes that is a balk. If a pitcher makes any movement that is naturally associated with his pitch home, he must deliver a pitch to home, otherwise his movement is a balk. Even if he started his pitching motion to home and then stopped, witout throwing to first, it would be a balk. ---------- However, standing on the mound with the pivot foot in contact with the pitching rubber is not "in the act of pitching," and from that position, before he starts his pitching motion, the pitcher can throw to 1B without it being a balk.

Is there a pitcher in baseball that pitches right and left handed?

There may be a pitcher somewhere in baseball that can pitch ambidextrous, but there's not much of a call for it in the game. A pitcher may pitch either left or right handed to any batter, but they must use the same hand for that at-bat. The reason it is so rare is because of the many years that it takes for a person to perfect their pitches with just one hand. It's obvious that a pitcher will be much better pitching with one hand than they will be with the other. They also won't be able to throw as hard. A manager needs his pitcher to be able to locate his pitches effectively. It's more than likely too risky for a pitcher to change hands while one arm is warm and the other is cold.
