What Major League Batters batted cross-handed?

There have been a number of major league players who batted cross-handed early in their career, but nearly all changed to the conventional grip before playing in the Major Leagues. Cross-handed hitting was more common in the late 1800s and there were more players that started hitting cross-handed then. Ezra Sutton, Frankie Frisch, Sherry Magee, and Christy Mathewson were all major league players from the early days of baseball who hit cross-handed early in their career. Ezra Sutton hit cross-handed for at-least part of his first major league season. Frankie Frisch was a switch hitter and there are baseball cards showing him hitting left-handed with a conventional grip and right-handed with a cross-handed grip. Latter players who hit cross-handed included baseball greats Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron. Mickey Mantle switched to a conventional grip while still young through (12 years old). Hank Aaron switched to a conventional grip during his first season in the minor leagues (1953) so he also never hit cross-handed in the Major League (first season with the Milwaukee Braves was 1954). In 1952, Hank led the Negro League with a batting average of .467 while hitting cross-handed though.

Why are catchers almost always right handed throwers?

In little League thru High School, most batters are right handed as well. A left handed catcher will not have near as much success throwing the ball to second on a steal. Also, since most catchers are right handed, most pitchers are disoriented by a left handed catcher therefore coaches will discourage lefties from pursuing the position.

What are little league baseball dimensions?

The infield is smaller, a sixty foot span between bases as compared with the regulation 90 of the Big Leagues. therefore the distance from the Pitcher"s mound to home plate would be different also. Other than that baseball rules apply. In the Industrial League in Bayonne, they sometimes had auxiliary short-fielders, or ten-man ( or man-child) baseball, this may have been experimental- it stood out. I mention this as this was part of the Little League system.


What kind of dirt is used in a Major League baseball infield?

The "dirt" we see isn't really what I would call dirt. A baseball infield is made up of a special mixture of sand, silt, and clay. (Silt is a natural material halfway between sand and clay as far as particle size is concerned.) There doesn't seem to be any one central source and depends more of the likings of the local groundskeepers. At Fenway Park, they mix in some ground up kitty-litter type stuff to give the infield "dirt" a redder color. Our local AA minor league park has artificial "dirt" made up of ground up automobile tires. Low maintenance and good drainage were what they were looking for around here!
