Best Answer

Willy Aybar of the Tampa Bay Rays is the most recent batter to hit home runs from both sides of the plate, at home to the Kansas City Royals on August 3rd. There have been nine instances of switch hitters hitting home runs from both sides of the plate in the 2009 season. Nick Swisher and Mark Texeira, both of the New York Yankees, have done it twice. Tony Clark and Felipe Lopez, of the Arizona Diamondbacks, achieved home runs from both sides of the plate in the same game, at home to the Colorado Rockies on April 6th. The other two batters to accomplish the feat are Melky Cabrera (also of the Yankees) and Orlando Hudson (Los Angeles Dodgers).

Why did Mickey Mantle become a switch-hitter?

For various reasons, batters hit better when they are on the side of the plate opposite from the side the pitcher is throwing from. A batter who can hit equally well from both sides of the plate thus eliminates any advantage a pitcher throwing from the same side would have. Thus, Mantle was raised to be a switch hitter by his family.

Do they make a inline switch to cut power on a 240 circuit?

In North America, the use of a two pole single throw switch is used for this purpose. The reason that a two pole switch is used instead of a single pole switch is that code requires that both legs to the 240 volt load has to be broken so as to isolate the load completely from the supply voltage. If a single pole switch was used in this situation one leg of the 240 volt supply would still be "hot" to ground. Someone that is inexperienced with the system could get a nasty shock by just using the switch to isolate the circuit when working on it instead of using the supply breaker to isolate the circuit. In the UK it is a different scenario as the load across the 240 supply returns to a grounded neutral. In this case just a single pole single throw switch will isolate the circuit.

Is there a difference between American league and national league distance from home plate and the pitchers mound?

What does common mean on a light switch?

On a single pole single throw there is no common terminal. On a single pole double throw it is the terminal that is common to both the top and bottom terminals. The "hot" wire is connected to the common terminal so that when the switch is in the up position that terminal becomes energized and there will be no no voltage on the bottom terminal. When the switch is in the down position the bottom terminal becomes energized and there will be no voltage on the top terminal. In relays thisis known as a C form configuration.

How is an electrical double pole switch correctly wired?
