Switch Pitcher Glove

A switch pitcher is defined as pitcher who is able to pitch with either arm. So too rare is the switch pitcher glove. The switch pitcher glove allows the pitcher to switch to the other trowing hand without going to the dugout for a different glove. These athletes are at a distinct advantage because they can switch pitching arms. The unique ability to be able to choose which hand to use maximizes the matchup advantages when facing the batter. The pitcher will have the benefit when facing off against a batter with the same dominant arm. Thus by switching to the opposite arm, the pitcher will gain the advantage over the batter. This advantage is a result of the angle of the pitches off the mound. Plus, the break of the pitches away from the hitter. In addition, by being able to use two pitching arms, the athlete reduces the wear and tear on the body.
