The A's just called up switch pitcher, Pat Vanditte to the bigs.

He came into the game tonight in Boston. The oddity is that he faced Swihart, Boston's catcher, and a switch-hitter himself. Vanditte was pitching left-handed, but wanted to move Swihart to the left-hand batter's box. The rule was that the pitcher had to signal his intent prior to making a pitch to the batter. This he did, Swihart batted left vs the now right-handed Vanditte, and struck out. Interesting to watch. Vanditte's glove is constructed with two "thumbs", so that he can switch hands without having to get a new glove each time.
