To people who do not watch baseball, the term switch hitter means nothing. The term applies to a batter who can hit from both sides of the batting plate, he is neither right or left handed.
Since my days in school, I have thought I was left-handed, doing things right-handed sometimes felt wrong to me.
Today, not only starts a new year for me but probably a new way of life as my right-hand joints are so severely damaged I am forced to use my left hand more than I usually would.
Until recently - within the last 20 years - if you were at school and tried to write left-handed you were punished. In some religions to this day, being left-handed is considered as a sign of Satan.
