    Didn't Kris Armstrong pitch both ways in high school? I don't think he ever got the chance at Florida.

    So does he have a special glove to accommodate the switch?

    He's gotta have two gloves that he switches out. No?

    I cant tell in video, but I would assume so. They do make them.

    Im curious how much stamina on each side.. Could he start one day as lefty, stay lefty, then start next day as RH?? He should get 2 NIL deals if so..;)

    There was a milb pitcher a few years back that did this-he used one glove, they wouldn’t allow swapping. His glove looked similar to the trapeze style glove with a slight difference. (2 thumbs if I recall correctly)

    Pat Venditte and you are correct he had a custom made (of course) 6 finger glove.
