I know this title sounds a little odd, but.
We actually had a player on a roster that had left and right-handed bats.
Every time he’d switch hit, either hitting lefty or righty, he had different bats with his number on the heel of the bats. Here was he logic.
He was primarily a right-handed batter, and he swung a certain bat depending on what he was going to do in the box at that particular at bat. If he was swinging for the Barbsol signs he’d used a kind of bat with a length, weighted in a particular fashion like a Worth bat with a solid bat neck. If he was swinging to move a runner over, he’d pick up his Rawlings whip neck, again, with a specific weight and length. If he was laying down a bunt, he had a couple of Louisville Sluggers of varying lengths and weights.
Now to top this off, all that would change if he was swinging lefty.
He was the only man I ever saw that came to every single game with a golf bag full of bats.
The guys use to kid him about having a caddy, but after only a few games into a season, nobody was very enthusiastic about kidding him. His approach had a purpose – as every apposing rotation found out.
