This Amazing Pitcher Throws 95 MPH Right-Handed—and 93 MPH Left-Handed

#1

His unearthly gift must be seen to be believed: a right-handed college pitcher, confident on the hill, in command of several pitches, his fastball blazing well into the mid-90s.

Then—behold!—he switches his custom Wilson glove to his opposite hand, adjusts his feet, turns his body and does it all over again…left-handed.

His name is Jurrangelo Cijntje (pronounced SAIN-ja), and he’s a 20-year-old “switch-pitching” phenomenon from Curaçao, by way of the Netherlands and Florida, currently helping 16th-ranked Mississippi State make a charge to the College World Series.

At the moment, Cijntje holds a 7-1 record with 89 strikeouts over 70 innings. He would be a major-league prospect if he merely threw from the right side, where his repertoire includes a sizzling fastball, curve, slider and change-up.

It seems like there would be more of these guys in College and lower levels of pro baseball. Such a great weapon, especially now that the pitchers have to throw to 3 batter minimum in relief.

He could be his own reliever.

Someone said being ambidextrous meant being equally bad with both hands.

I actually got the player wrong. It was Charles Shakleford, not Chris Washburn

That quote is money. He should be proud of himself.
