Why are left handed pitchers valuable?

Lefty pitchers are valuble because they are a rare commodity. The ball comes off their fingers at a different angle and arm slot than would a righty typically and could be different for a batter to see. The way the ball moves is different in that a curve/slider will cut the opposite way (along with other pitches having different movement). The main reason is that against a lefty batter the lefty pitcher is highly affective. The batter doesn't have as much time to guage where the pitch is coming from, the spin the pitcher puts on it, or the velocity. This is the same reason why righties are more affective against righties and why a manager will pull a pitcher or put in a pinch hitter for these matchups.

Why did jimi Hendrix play a righty guitar?

Jimmi was a left handed guitarist. But as a young, non-performer, he did not have very much money. Lefty guitars were tough to find and more expensive than righty guitars since they were so rare. Jimmi decided to go ahead and buy the righty guitar and he switched the strings so that the only difference was that the guitar was flipped. The strings were the same as when a righty played it because he flipped those and the strap was also flipped so that he could stand and play.
