Ambidextrous pitcher, Pat Venditte was born June 30, 1985 and is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball (MLB). After attending Creighton University, the New York Yankees of MLB drafted Venditte in 2008. He signed with the Athletics as a free agent before the 2015 season.
Venditte is a switch pitcher, capable of pitching proficiently with both arms. He is recognized as the only active professional pitcher who is able to do this. Venditte's rare ability to pitch with either arm required Minor League Baseball to create a rule for ambidextrous pitchers, known colloquially as the "Pat Venditte Rule".
Venditte began the 2015 season with the Nashville Sounds of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League. He pitched to a 1.36 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 17 games for Nashville before he was promoted to the Athletics for his first major-league stint on June 5.
