Um....well.........uh........I don't know.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

is there a site or sourse that can tell me whos a Switch Hitter?


that is some nice company you got there...

Mantle, Snow? Cruz?

Snow and Cruz are awful at the plate. and JT quit switch hitting a couple of years ago cus' he sucked at that too.

But i think what you are looking for is that they are better athletes. Generally to be a switch hitter you have to be a good athlete. Not all baseball players are good athletes. How about Cecil Feilder?



Don't forget John Kruk...


Kruk wasn't a switch hitter.

It funny how baseball works that way. Bo Jackson was supposedly one the greatest athletes of all time but Kruk was a far, far, far better baseball player than Bo.
