Yes, but if he starts a batter right-handed he must finish that batter right-handed (or left-handed if he started the batter left-handed).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Would it be possible for someone to note the rule in MLB, or in any organized Baseball league, that states a pitcher cannot change hands to a batter during an at bat. This question comes up a lot with the question of 'can a batter switch sides of the plate during an at bat'. It would be great if someone could note the rule concerning this.

Why does field hockey cater only for right handed players?

Although the stick is designed for right-handed people, there are some skills which left-handers find easier. The game was originally played this way because more of the players were right-handed, and it has continued as such because having combination of left- and right-handed sticks is a serious safety issue; this (danger) is the first thing FIH tries to avoid, and so the rules require a stick made the right-handed way.
