Favorite headline of week. He pitches righty, lefty — and evidently, also underwater. Faces Aquaman in next outing. pic.twitter.com/efxaQxFp8Z— Neill Woelk (@NeillWoelk) June 8, 2015
PENDLETON, Ore., June 9 (UPI) -- An Oregon newspaper might want to check its autocorrect settings after a headline hailed the debut of an "amphibious pitcher."
However, the subject of the story, Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Pat Venditte, is actually ambidextrous -- he can pitch with both arms.
Venditte's ability to pitch underwater, as the headline would imply, has yet to be proven.
Woelk joked Venditte "faces Aquaman in [his] next outing."
