It's just more fun to bat as a Lefty

Especially with a closed off batting stance like Rizzo. Why would you ever want to bat righty again? Nothing better than pulling one between 1st and 2nd.

Definitely agree. Nothing sweeter than dropping your PCI on a low off speed pitching and crushing it to right field

Idk if itís because of the far greater number of right handed pitchers in the league or the pure beauty of left handed swings in real life.

It's totally because of that for me, personally. I'm absolutely useless with lefties versus good lefty pitchers, more so than the reverse.

You can always use a full size mirror when hitting with righties!

that's the 3rd best thing about batting lefty


2nd best is beating the shift with a hit that normally would have been a ground out to third and 1st is beating the shift with a ground ball seeing eye hit into right field. as for the closed off stance I cant hit with them. our batting coach sends any hitter with this flaw back to the stance editor room to work on opening that sucker up lol

Re: It's just more fun to bat as a Lefty

I honestly canít time up a righty hitter nearly as well as I can hitting as a lefty. I have no idea why..

Re: It's just more fun to bat as a Lefty

IRL, I was a switch hitter so that's how I play in the game. IRL I was a better contact hitter righthanded but a better power hitter left handed.
