  1. left-handed pitcher

    A left-handed pitcher is a baseball player who pitches (throws the ball towards the home plate to the batter) using their left hand. This is opposite to right-handed pitchers who throw with their right hand. Left-handed pitchers are often valued in the game due to their rarity, and the different angle and perspective they provide while throwing, which can be more challenging for batters.
