For various reasons, batters hit better when they are on the side of the plate opposite from the side the pitcher is throwing from.

Thus, Mantle was raised to be a switch hitter by his family.

The batter can only switch boxes if he is a switch hitter and a new pitcher comes in. Otherwise a batter must remain on the same side of the plate for the entire At-Bat.

How can you learn to be a switch hitter?

To learn to be a switch hitter the most important thing, is being able to hit effectivley from the side that you're used to first. Which means if you bat left, make sure you can hit for a good average left, before trying anything from the right side of the plate. Second, I myself am a switch hitter. The biggest thing that helped me in the beginning was watching games and watching the way the pros who bat left handed swung the bat. From there I just did what they did, and eventually you fall into you're own style. But if you're batting Swich make sure however you bat it's comfrable for you.
