Why choose a left handed pitcher to face a left handed batter?

As a general rule, in pressure situations managers seem to like having a left handed pitcher facing a left handed batter and a right handed pitcher facing a right handed batter. One explanation could be the angle the ball travels ... a curve ball from a left handed pitcher moves away from a left handed hitter while it moves towards a right handed hitter. Odds are a hitter is not going to hit a ball that is moving away as hard as is a hitter that has the ball moving in. Of course, if that curve ball moves to the center of the plate it is gonna get hammered regardless of whether a lefty or righty is batting.

Why do right handed batters in baseball hit better off left handed pitchers?

The answer is because left handed batters hit worse off left handed pitchers. There are two reasons for this. The first reason is spin. A left handed pitcher will more easily be able to put spin on a ball that causes the pitch to move from the right side to the left side of the plate (from the catcher's view). This spin moves away from a left handed hitter and toward a right handed hitter. It is believed, with lots of data to support it, that a ball spinning away from a hitter is harder to hit than one spinning closer to the hitter. That's one reason a left handed batter is worse at hitting a left handed pitcher. The other reason is sight and release points. The same principle of spin applies that a pitch moving away from the batter is harder to hit than one moving closer to a batter. Because of the pitcher's release point, a left handed pitcher will release the ball somewhere to the right of the mound (from the catcher's view) when the ball is thrown. If we assume the ball has no spin and is pitched to the center of home plate, it will have moved from the right of the mound to the center of the plate. This movement from a left handed pitcher is going away from a left handed hitter and going closer to a right handed hitter. There is not much difference between how well right handed batters fare against right handed pitchers and left handed pitchers because right handed pitchers are so common that right handed batters don't have the same level of disadvantage as left handed batters do against left handed pitchers. But the reason why right handed batters are better than left handed batters against left handed pitchers is mostly explained with spin and release points.

You are a left-handed thrower but you bat like a right-handed is that bad or unnormal and Should you train to bat left or is it too late?

There is no appropriate category for this question. If you throw left handed and bat right handed you are giving up the advantage of batting left handed against right handed pitching. Since there are more right handed pitchers and it is supposed to be an advantage to bat the opposite hand of the pitcher it would be a good idea to work on batting left handed. Don't stop batting right handed though as this is an advantage against left handed pitching. From what country are you?
