right handed pitchers throw breaking balls that break AWAY from right handed hitters and vice versa, thus it is generally considered more difficult for a right handed batter to hit righties. There are exceptions, the 'screwball' is an example. Generally a right hander wants to throw it only to a lefthander. Its not that common of a pitch. Recently the most notable example was Fernando Valenzuela and lesser known Jim Mecir.
Right handed hitters see the ball better when a left handed pitcher is throwing it, as the ball is coming from the opposite side of the plate from the batter's perspective. The same goes for left handed hitters vs. right handed pitchers. This makes switch hitters a valuable commodity in Baseball.
It doesn't really matter. Both hands, whichever side, are writing hands, so they are completely equal depending on which one you use. I don't think it matters if your left handed or right handed in playing baseball.
The Yankees have a pitcher in the minors named Pat Venditte who throws with both hands.
A left handed hitter only hits right handed people
Righties hit into way more double plays.
right handed hitters
No WAY Right Handed pitchers break their arms during pitching too
to pitch a fast ball , you start with both feet on the rubber ( pitchers mound ) come up with ball in the glove , after bring your hands apart and come down with it bring your pitchers arm back and start your windwill ,as a right hand pitch you step with your left leg and push off the rubber with you right to get speed, for a lefty you want to step with your right leg and push off with you left , release at your hip and follow threw
Yes, it's legal in Major League Baseball provided the pitcher isn't in the middle of a pitch otherwise it's illegal.
As of the 2014 season, the Atlanta Braves have 16 right handed pitchers.
I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about but... Right-handed pitchers do better against right-handed batters than they do against left-handed batters. And left-handed pitchers do better against left-handed batters than they do against right-handed batters. Conversely, right-handed batters do better against left-handed pitchers than right-handed pitchers and left-handed batters do better against right-handed pitchers than left-handed pitchers. My dad explained to me once why it worked out this way, but I don't know if I fully understand it. Apparently, the horizontal motion on a pitched ball is such that, for a right-handed pitcher, the ball moves to his left, or to the batter's right. If you are a right-handed batter, the ball is moving AWAY from you, but if you are a left-handed batter, the ball is moving TOWARD you. And, apparently, it's easier to hit a ball moving toward you than to hit one moving away from you. Personally, it's incredible to me that ANYONE can hit a pitched ball, even when it's only going 70 MPH, regardless of which way it's moving, so maybe that's why the explanation didn't make sense to me.
