"Left-handers are even supposed to pitch differently; conventional wisdom has it that a left-hander's ball 'moves more.' Even so astute an analyst as Earl Weaver acknowledged that this appeared to be so. Weaver did stop short of citing the explanation offered by his former player, Merv Rettenmun, who said lefties' pitches move more 'because they throw against the earth's rotation.'" - Author Daniel Okrent in Nine Innings: The Anatomy of a Baseball Game (Mariner Books, 04/10/2000, Chapter 8, Page 217)
