Love The Glove

Peter Abraham has a post on his blog that’s very kind to this one regarding Pat Venditte’s glove.  Again, I’ll have my feature on the future member of the Thunder posted tomorrow…but in the meantime, here’s the other two photos of his glove that I took to carry you over until tonight’s game against the B-Mets.

Yes, that’s Venditte signing autographs to the right of the shot. He was letting the kids try on his glove and answering all their questions about it. One fan even brought some newspaper clippings about Venditte to get signed.

You’ll read more about this tomorrow, but Venditte pitched one season at Creighton with current Thunder reliever Eric Wordekemper. I’d post the Venditte feature now, but I need to talk to Wordekemper today for some additional perspective.

    Great stuff Mike. The question I have is this, can he pitch on back to back days, one day left handed and the next right handed? Say he pitches a lot of pitches using his right arm and his right arm is exhausted. Could he pitch the next day using his left arm even though his right arm is shot?

    […] thanks to Mike Ashmore’s Thunder Thoughts, which covers one of the Yankees’ minor league […]

    I don’t have a definitive answer to that, but I would imagine that if it were in a specialized situation — to get one out, etc. — that could be possible.
