I'm solidly in the left-handed column

I also, suffer from the daily discrimination that so many 'handists' dish out. From writing smudge-free papers in school, to playing infield on a Baseball team, life is hard for us. Hey wow, it never occurred to me that this guy is a lefty.

It's easier to play first base in baseball as a leftie.

Count me in as a lefty.

My Son is ambidexterous.... was able to switch hit in baseball and also played first base. Drafted by the Royals in 89.

Proud Pop alert on the photos!!

my 16 y.o. son is a lefty --or I should say WAS a lefty. Last year, he was in a cast for much of the year (wrestling injuries...) and changed to his right so that he could keep up with school work. Now he is a righty.

Although, strangely enough, he sketches with both hands at the same time... always has...tree trunk brown...leaves green...at the same time!!
If he is drawing a person's face, he will sketch the eyes or eyebrows at the same time --obviously with two pencils; I can't fathom doing that... Weird, eh?

Oh yeah? How about Lizzie Borden, Madame LaFarge, Mata Hari, Betty Freidan, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Catherine the Great?

Which US president could write with both hands at same time?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_A._Garfield



Garfield was the first ambidextrous president. It was said that one could ask him a question in English and he could simultaneously write the answer in Latin with one hand, and Ancient Greek with the other.

Your Son could be Presidential material Tile Mom!!
