I somehow missed it (I blame it on the heavy drinking :-) ) but Colin Cowgill this year became only the 41st position player since 1901 to bat righty and throw lefty. That's not with some minimum PAs or games or anything. That's everyone who has appeared in at least half their games in the field. That's including 8 guys with fewer PAs than Cowgill has accumulated already. BTW it is much more common in pitchers as there have been 442 of those. BTW2 - one such player had a significantly better career than any other "bats R/throws L" position player. Can you name him?
