Baseball Fans will Love this: Ambidextrous hitter against ambidextrous pitcher

Baseball fans will love this video here and here.

The pitcher, with a custom-made glove, switched hands each time the batter switched sides of the plate, seeking an edge based on the conventional baseball wisdom that left-handed batters fare better against right-handed pitchers and vice versa. In frustration the teams asked the umpires for a decision. The umpires decided that both sides could switch once per time at bat, but that the batter had to decide first, giving the pitcher an advantage. The pitcher used his right arm to strike out the batter, batting right, on four pitches to end the game.
