Baseball players are fickle
Pat Venditte is the switch-pitcher that the Yankees recently drafted who has been getting a lot of press lately. His glove is also ambidextrous, allowing him to throw from either the left or right side at any point in the inning, without having to call time to get a different glove. Thursday night was the television debut of Venditte, as the Staten Island Yankees and Brooklyn Cyclones battled it out on SNY. When a switch-hitter came to the plate, the cat-and-mouse games began.
The best part about the clip is Steve Berthiaume sarcastically calling Gary Apple's play-by-play of the situation,"brilliant." Berthiaume is a former SNY anchor who pokes fun at the Mets routinely on Baseball Tonight.
