Sports WaveMaker: Ambidextrous - Switch-Hitting Vs. Switch-Pitching

Here's a unique incident for this week's WaveMaker365 Sports Showcase:
Staten Island Yankees pitcher Pat Venditte uses a six-fingered glove that can be worn on either hand. The ambidextrous pitcher switched throwing hands versus a Brooklyn Cyclones switch hitter Friday night. They went back and forth switching hitting and pitching sides. The advantage goes to a pitcher throwing from the opposite side of the batter. The rule was stated that the pitcher must declare what arm he will use before an at bat. This would follow that an ambidextrous pitcher switching throwing arms is the same as a relief pitcher to come in from the bullpen. The video from ESPN describes this unique incident in baseball.
