Best Answer

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.
