Pat Venditte Stats

Pat Venditte was born on Sunday, June 30, 1985, in Omaha, Nebraska. Venditte was 29 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 5, 2015, with the Oakland Athletics. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Pat Venditte baseball stats page.

"Mostly, though, Pat Venditte was made, not born. He is an object of choice, not fate. He has quite possibly thrown more baseballs than any other man his age in history because he's had twice as many arms with which to throw them." - By Chris Jones (ESPN: The Magazine, May 12, 2015, "Show of Hands", Source )

Pat Venditte is a switch pitcher, meaning he can pitch left-handed as well as right-handed. When Pat made his Major League debut on June 5, 2015 , he did exactly that and became the first switch-pitcher to throw both left- and right-handed during his big league debut.

Pat Venditte Major League Debut | June 5, 2015 ( Box Score ) | MLB Properties, LLC

On July 2, 2008, the Professional Baseball Umpire Corporation created a new rule specifically addressing ambidextrous pitchers. The colloquially named "Pat Venditte Rule" came about after Pat made his Minor League debut with the Staten Island Yankees, on June 19, 2008.

With two outs, in the bottom of the ninth inning, switch-hitter Ralph Henriquez came to the plate batting right-handed. Venditte then switched his glove and stance on the mound, so Henriquez switched his stance in the box. This back-and-forth continued until the umpire ordered Ralph to bat righty (video below). A few weeks later the "Venditte Rule / Venditte Guidelines" were issued:

The pitcher must visually indicate to the umpire, batter and runner(s) which way he will begin pitching to the batter. Engaging the rubber with the glove on a particular hand is considered a definitive commitment to which arm he will throw with. The batter will then choose which side of the plate he will bat from.

The pitcher must throw one pitch to the batter before any "switch" by either player is allowed.

After one pitch is thrown, the pitcher and batter may each change positions one time per at-bat. For example, if the pitcher changes from right-handed to left-handed and the batter then changes batter's boxes, each player must remain that way for the duration of that at-bat (unless the offensive team substitutes a pinch hitter, and then each player may again "switch" one time).

Any switch (by either the pitcher or the batter) must be clearly indicated to the umpire.

There will be no warm-up pitches during the change of arms.

If an injury occurs the pitcher may change arms but not use that arm again during the remainder of the game.

Did you know that Pat Venditte was the fifth switch-pitcher in baseball history, joining Tony Mullane , Elton Chamberlain , Larry Corcoran , and Greg Harris ?
