"Famer? Well, you didn't the first year, but now you do? What happened? You just ran out of good candidates this year? Derek Jeter, did Derek Jeter have 10% of the voters first year of eligibility? How about Mariana? Marianne don't have 10% of the vote. Did they say, you know what? We got too many guys in the ballot, so let's make, we won't vote for Marianne this year. 10%? I can see if rolling at 40, 50%. All right, he made a jump. That's been done. But Chris. Let me ask you this. What if I said you can either look at all the stats or you can't look at any stats? And you decide who's going into the Hall of Fame. So right now, you can't factor in anything with Billy Wagner other than I'm going to go Billy Wagner Hall of Famer. Well, I would say no, because I would go, I test, and I'm going to remember the bad games in a postseason. Okay. Todd Hilton. Well, I'm going to I'm going to be anti Coors field because we all know that was a huge advantage in our galaga and all those dain Dante Bichette. Why isn't it still an advantage, Chris? Say, again, I'm sorry. We don't hear about Coors field being an advantage the way it was when you had those great rocky teams. A 100%. And you know, without looking at the stats, doesn't it bother you a little bit that helped and hits two 87 lifetime outside of Coors field and he's got a 140 homers. Yeah. I mean, Hernandez is at two 96 and he's got a 150 homes. Put him in a Hall of Fame. So I have a problem with him too, and he's going to make it. Look at his 71%. Yeah. He's going to get in. Yeah. He's going to get in. But you know what? And we brought this up. Scott Roland wasn't a star. Just to plug and play very good reds and cardinals and whatever. You know, Dale Murphy was his star. Don Mattingly star. But they didn't have the numbers, but if you said, hey, Don Mattingly is going in because of contributions to the game or the star power, what he did. You know, he missed probably two more years than he's going to be a Hall of Famer.

"And it drives me crazy every year when I see, you know, Alex Rodriguez pulls it 36%. Manny Ramirez pulls at 33%, Gary Sheffield, who was named in the Mitchell report. Fell short of the 75%. He's at 64%. There are current Hall of Famers who use steroids and who used amphetamines. And everybody knows it. And yet, we have two of the greatest players of all time. Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds who are put in purgatory and the reason why is because they were the best of their generation, which got the more scrutiny. It doesn't mean they did something different. They actually, you know, I assume probably did about the same thing that more than 50% of the players were doing, but because they were the best players they got more scrutiny. So that kind of drives me crazy. The other thing too is I feel like every year hambo, I see no acknowledgment from the writers about the decisions that are made by these special committees. The fact is, and I don't know if you view it the same way, there is no distinction between being voted in by the writers or being voted in by the special committees. So on the plaque for Harold baines, it just lets him for specifics in his career in the exact same way that it is Hank Aaron. So I think the writers need to understand that better and need to look at that the standards that are being established by these special committees, you know, an example of that to me would be Billy Wagner. Look, Lee Smith, for me, was a borderline case, but the special committee put him in and what, 2018, 2019, if Lee Smith is in the Hall of Fame hambo, I'm sorry, Billy Wagner. It's a slam dunk. When you look at the numbers, when you look at the efficiency, when you look at the dominance, it's not even close, but it's as if the writers are not acknowledging the precedent by the special committees which effectively serve like the Supreme Court, they overrule what the writers have done. They put players in and they set a new standard for the Hall of Fame. So whether you like it or not, a Hall of Fame that has Lee Smith, the Hall of Fame that had Harold baines, I think the writers have to acknowledge that with their choices and they don't seem to. Well, I think the writers are put in a tough spot there too because both Harold baines and Lee Smith were shut out by the writers because the writers, in my opinion, correctly viewed them as players that fell short of the Hall of Fame threshold, because look, at least the process by which the writers arrive at their decisions is democratic, you're using a large body of people, theoretical experts to make those decisions. When it comes to these committees, in all candor things are a joke because every player is in every person that committee is just subjected to persuasion. In the case of Harold baines, it was Tony La Russa bullying people and to convincing them he was a Hall of Famer. We shouldn't necessarily change our standard or a threshold for Hall of Famer based upon the lowest common denominator that is in it. Like you said, if Harold baines is in the Hall of Fame, we're going to have a Hall of Fame with 2000 people. Of that, I'm not comfortable. The distinction though between players like mcgriff and Roland is one worth making because if you've not been to the plaque gallery, if you've not been to that area of the Hall of Fame, there is no distinction. Babe Ruth is in the same room as Harold baines. It's a point of making and reminding people because you go through this painstaking process of in some cases failing to reach the Hall of Fame and then if 8 people 5 years from now decide, you get 8 people in a room that decide that you are one. All of a sudden you are one. So in some sense, like the process itself for the writers and so different than the process by which so many guys are getting into the Hall of Fame. Now there's a committee every single year. I'm not in love with it either. Well, and I disagree with you. I think you do have to follow precedent. If you're the writers and the special committee essentially comes in and says, no, I'm sorry, you know, chuck Klein is a Hall of Famer or this player is a Hall of Famer. That player's Hall of Famer, then moving forward, you have to, you have to apply that standard because it raises questions when you look at an Andrew Jones. Well, if Harold baines is a Hall of Famer, then at Andrew Jones needs to be, if Harold baines is a whole family, guess what? Lance berkman's numbers are overwhelmingly. Qualify him for this. And if I were, yes, that's fair about there. If I were in that position, my pushback would be this. I'm not going to allow the mistakes that others, the I perceive other people having have made already. To dictate my future decisions. But if the Hall of Fame does come out with some sort of official statement and say, this is our precedent now. Right. Exactly. I'm essentially going to pretend I like one of the Electoral College voters, right? This is my opinion and the president we have said. Yeah, no, I, you know, sent out some tweets yesterday mentioning guys like Omar vizquel, you know,

"And someone on Reddit noticed that if you typed in rolling Scott at the end, you got a message that said you are not authorized to access this page, whereas if you typed in other candidates who, as we know now, did not get in, you got a page not found error, which was certainly suggestive that that page existed and was built and was just not publicly accessible yet. So that was kind of a tip off. And there was a similar incident, I think it was 7 years ago with Ken griffey junior and Mike Piazza, not that there was think that that is correct. Yeah, not a lot of suspense about Ken griffey. Junior getting in. But nonetheless, there was a similar sort of spoiler posted then because if you typed in their URL, it went from the page could not be found to you can't access this page, you know, which is sort of a tell. So that's a music. They should probably figure this out, right? Because if they want to keep the suspense and I know not most people who are watching the ballot reveal on MLB network and following these things are on the baseball subreddit, but still, there's probably a way you could camouflage that, I would imagine. Yeah, one would think. Now, one would also maybe think that you could, you know, cast a ballot, electronically. And as a B BWA member, I shouldn't be casting stones at the Hall of Fame's glass house because I still have to write a paper check for my deuce. Yeah, me too. Yeah. Those checks are like three addresses ago, by the way. This will work. You don't have to update them. It doesn't matter. Yeah, it's like one of the, I don't know, two or three checks I write per year if that, like I have to remind myself, how do I write a check again, right? Right. Every time I said the PBW. So yeah, we have not joined the millennium. No, we are all of us struggling to catch up in our own ways. But yeah, I would hope that someone has pointed out to the hall that this remains an issue because like yesterday, they probably didn't know about it until afterward because they were busy, you know, getting ready to name a Hall of Famer. So yeah. I actually, I wondered because, as you said, I didn't vote. I have discussed my reservations with the process before at some length, so I won't rehash that here, but I just did not submit a ballot, did not submit a blank ballot, just did not submit about big difference, but I wondered because I got a couple of calls from the hall in the days leading up to the announcement. Just making sure that my ballot hadn't been lost or that I hadn't tried to submit one, which I don't recall happening last year. And so I was thinking, I wonder whether they realized that no one got in, they got skunked again, and now they're like calling around to make sure they didn't lose a ballot somewhere that would get someone in. Like maybe it would just be I was worried. It's like, uh oh, is this going to come down to one vote or am I mentioned going to be bad? There are people going to be mad at me because I was the one who didn't give Scott Roland the one vote he needed. As it turns out, as Jay will mention, one voter's ballot apparently was lost in the mail. So maybe they were calling around because once that happened, they wanted to make sure that it didn't happen to anyone else. But yes, that was making me curious before the results were announced. Anyway, congrats to Scott Rowland and we'll talk about everyone else who came close and put themselves in position to get in in one of these years. I saw an argument. I wonder whether you find this persuasive because we'll talk a little bit about this with Jay but not in depth Billy Wagner was one of the players who took a significant leap and now looks like he is poised to get in and one of the next few years and armor of saber who's been on the show he tweeted there was never a moment during Billy Wagner's career when I wouldn't have happily traded him for Andy Pettit and Andy Pettitte did not get nearly the same level of support and has not seen the same sort of growth. And Jonathan Bernstein pointed out on Twitter also their salary histories would seem to support that, you know, baseball people at the time were willing to pay more for the services of Andy Pettit than Billy Wagner and same for Cy Young voters, for instance, so in that sense Hall of Fame voters are sort of out of step with how those players were perceived at the time. Now we were just talking about the fact that perceptions can evolve and that can be a good thing. And I know Pettit has the HDH of thing on his record. So substitute Mark Burley or Tim Hudson or some other comparable starter who has recently been eligible for that and Wagner his way outstrip them. And I guess this comes down to the fact that people now are looking at starter and reliever at just separate positions and Wagner was incredibly dominant as a reliever more so than Pettit was as a starter even, although had it certainly has a cooperstown case in his own right. And so people are just saying, well, there are relievers in and so if we're putting relievers in, then Wagner compares favorably to some of the guys who are already in and he was just so good at his job despite the job being more limited that he should be in. But what do you make of that argument? So I tend to take the following approach to the hall. And I reserve the right to change this approach as my own ballot approaches. But I tend to take what I might call a like a Noah's ark approach to the Hall of Fame. I think that there should be, well, it doesn't necessarily have to be too. You can have more or less not a lot less, but less. I understand that it is a kind of picture. But I think that it is a distinct kind. I actually think that the argument for including relievers is more persuasive for past generations of maybe than current ones where the line continues to blur between starter and reliever, but I think that it is a position. And so the best of the guys at that position should be in the hall, just like I think that the best DH should be in the hall. And yes, names out of your Martinez. That's a little not to you, Boston fans out there. Sound off in the comments. It's great. It's fine. They're both Hall of Famers. It doesn't matter anymore, you know? Here's the thing. It doesn't matter. It's fun. Everybody's happy, you know? Everyone got what they wanted. Including me. So I appreciate the argument that is being made that if you were good enough to be a starter, you just would probably be a starter in most cases and that relievers are failed starters in some respect. I think that that tends to smooth over and not do justice to how players have actually worked particularly now, but I appreciate the argument that if you could go a few more innings and reliably get through an order more times you'd just be a starter. I get it, but I also think that we have relievers. And so the best of them should be in there and they do generate value for their teams. They can create sort of a sense of psychological security on the part of their fans. And I think that it's interesting.

Well, he probably could have. Yeah. It's geniuses he was there. Also, a friend is pointing this out that Billy Wagner broke his right arm twice, so he had to learn to throw left handed. And then he ended up throwing a hundred miles an hour left handed. When he was little, he broke his arm twice, and they learned to be a left hander. That's crazy. He threw 200 miles an hour with his right hand right arm, but only a hundred miles an hour left hand. Still respectable. Thank you, Tom. Thank you, Todd. Jordan in California. Hi, Jordan, what's on your mind today? Hello? Good morning, hey, Dan. First time long time, 5, ten, one 75. I wanted to talk about the Hall of Fame and kind of Scott rolling getting in the die hard Giants fan out here in California. Thoughts on guys like Tim lint to come and Jeff Kent, I mean to me, Jeff Kent and Scott rolling are equal, it's not being better. And Ken's not even close and rolling gets in. And last point I wanted to make is our role in just 10% of his votes first ballot and then eventually gets in and just his stats didn't change. I don't understand how that all works. Well, you know, you can only vote for a certain number of players, candidates, and probably when he first got in. Nobody thought he was the first ballot Hall of Famer. Therefore you're not going to cast your vote for him. And, you know, we get caught up in who's a first battle Hall of Famer, who's not. Scott Rowland certainly not a first ballot Hall of Famer. And Jeff Kent, you want to put Jeff Ken in? Absolutely. I have no problem with that whatsoever. I'm probably more lenient when it comes to the Hall of Fame, but it goes back to what I've said many, many times on this show. There are certain players who are in the penthouse, and then there are certain players on the third floor in the second floor and the first floor. Well, Scott Rowland's on the first floor. He's not babe. He's not Lou Gehrig. All you got to do is get in the building. Right. That's it. I don't care. Just get me in the building. You want to put somebody above me? That's fine. I just want to be in the building. Michael and Wisconsin. Hi, Mike. What's on your mind?

"Even Billy Wagner or any of these guys. I don't get it. I feel bad talking against somebody, but I think that's, again, one of those Internet things where someone's looking at the stats and they've come up with some great stat that shows why their Hall of Famer and oh yeah, that's great. It's a great step. It's not all it's that. No, no, it's not. I mean, it's hard to define it, right? But it certainly is a ten year span or that particular decade. Were you the guy? Were you amongst the best during that ten year span? That's at least what my opinion is on what it should be. So that's fair. We'll have to I like it. That's a good way to define it. Yeah, no. Eventually, we will get the answers on this. Actually, tomorrow. Tomorrow we'll get the answers on this. We will. We will. And I think by and large, the voters have done pretty well. I like the fact they have the veterans committee that cleans it up. I did think scramble and Morris ultimately well borderline. I did ultimately vote for them at the end. And I'm glad that the veterans committee put them in. They've overshot on one or two cases. In my opinion. But not terribly, you know? I mean, there was so much about Harold baines getting it. Harold baines was a great player. You know, I think that's another Internet thing where people are saying, how could this guy be a whole thing? I mean, what do you have 2700 hits? It's pretty good. You know, he's a pretty good player. That's pretty good. Pretty good. So it didn't offend me. I think the veterans committee generally does a good job. Sometimes it gets a little too when you have 15 people. To me, that gets a little too personal. You know, you get a guy. Something for somebody and convincing a few others in the room and they can get in debt to me more about personality than the electorate. I can already hear it, both of us saying pretty good. Well, it's not the prettiest, it's not the pretty good of fame. So it's 2700 hits is excellent. It's beyond excellent. It's beyond and I get it. I didn't vote for Harold baines, but I mean, to have the outcry that people had. It was beyond what it should have been. I mean, he had a great career. Well, the debate will come to an end. Well, at least this year, it will come to an end tomorrow. We'll find out who's getting in, who's not getting in,

"But he has made serious gains too. So there have definitely been there's been a huge change. I feel in these sabermetric candidates. And some of that was with culling the electorate and making sure that we still have people that are actually covering the game today. I'm sure a lot of it came from requiring the votes to be published and a lot of it from Ryan thibodeau's live tracker too. I'm sure that there's a lot of public opinion interest that the voters have when they're about to submit their ballots, things like that. So all of that, I think, is contributed in some way. And yeah, just seeing candidates like Andrew Jones and Billy Wagner and Roland and seeing them climb up on their percentages as a huge change to what we were seeing years ago. So as we start to transition to these recent ballots and the new inductees, how did you develop your interest in early baseball in 19th century baseball? Because I think a lot of fans have their favorite era. And for most fans, it's probably either the present day or when they were a kid and first got into the game and I think for a lot of people, 19th century just seems so remote, it seems like a different sport. It seems like a different world than maybe some people have trouble connecting with it. But there are obviously a lot of great stories from that era and a lot of great players in that era and it is painted in certain ways. Certainly. And it was a different caliber of play for many reasons, of course. But it was also an era when there was a lot of innovation going on and people were figuring out how to play baseball. And what the rules were, which is kind of cool. So how did you get into that period of the game's history? Yeah, it started first what I mentioned deacon white earlier just early on when I was interested in stats,.

I didn't really see the need for that. But i'm not getting into their beef. I don't care about their beef. They're both all time to win over weight. Six championships got john. I'm definitely here for all of this. But i wanna say this about pip and we all know that in nineteen ninety four. He made a huge mistake. It was selfish. You quit on your team. That does not mean that when he makes some type of analysis or criticism that it's invalid. And i think kevin durant is gets very sensitive about this stuff now. I was at game five in game. Seven in in brooklyn and kevin durant was off the charts. Great in game five. He got help from jeff. Green jeff green scored twenty seven points in game seven. He was this close one inch away from hitting one of the greatest shots ever maybe the greatest but to say that he wasn't getting help from his team-mates it wasn't like he wasn't trying to get guys involved. Joe harris at one. Eleven all under a minute to go in overtime. Why don't missed a wide open three michael. That would have been a huge shot. That could have changed everything now. Kevin durant was over six in overtime. And you wanna you to say that. Should steve nash of called a timeout. Before that final play get kevin durant some rest. Perhaps but that guy was playing with his second best player. James harden on one late. Can't kill kevin right. I listened to me what scottie pippen saying. Spare i just don't agree with it. Listen kevin durant and james harden but particularly kevin durant in games five and seven. He brought honor to honor. He played every second. These games is insane. How great are coming off. An injury which no one has returned one hundred percent from except apparently him. Kevin durant brought honor to the to the game of basketball. Not getting in this scottie. Pippen one of the great champions of all time all these guys who take scottie. They gonna retire with six. No they're not gonna retire with six. So i'm always gonna stand for scotty when it comes to that but he you know what they're both and i'm not getting into this. You know what though the bourbon company. They're really happy that this story appeared in g q. It was topical. Give them credit for this because that series. Just send it on saturday and scott weighing in and everyone's paying attention to it so the burnley all time with timely yup to their party a couple of nights ago was in chicago. But that's another story. We had another no hitter in baseball. Last night this time it was davies and three cubs relievers combined to blank. The dodgers dallas street right here. They also combine the issue. Eight walks and the relievers say they didn't even know. The dodgers were hitless while they were pitching. Frank you put this no no in the same category with the six other this season. Seven if you like madison bumgarner now. No i don't but they really didn't know they didn't know i'm gonna tell you how dollar stadium a million times scoreboard. They can't see that from anywhere where they're not from the bullpen. And all that does not no one brought it up in the bullpen. At all do you know that we haven't given up a hit yet. All right i'll go along with it. 'cause i like that part of the story so i remember the yankees getting no hit. I thought it was by three. Houston astros pitchers. It was by six of them. This is already eighteen. Years ago. Billy wagner was part of to me. It's like that's just relievers coming in with their best stuff. It's pretty cool for the chicago cubs. It's the first time in franchise history. I'm not putting it up there with one pitcher pitching nine innings and getting a no hitter. It's just yes it counts as a no hitter. It's not the same you know managers meaning.

Here's reporter and net levy. I don't believe anybody knew he was going to do this. So it's it's a pretty stunning development to see. Jake widener the youngest of the entire family. Who would you would think would be. you know. Maybe the most pliable in some respects because he is the youngest but to see him just break away from his family. I don't know it's pretty interesting. The significance of jake wagner folding on his family cannot be overstated but what does it mean. Moving forward in criminal defense attorney. Mike allen told stephanie that could signal an impending legal chess match in terms of jake wagner's admission of guilt. I'm just curious about what that means. Altogether he's confessed to killing five of the eight rodents personally. Is he trying to save himself or trying to save his family. you know. obviously you know if he did five out of eight you still have three left and you know it'll come out who who actually did the killing on those other three but was probably a strategic move on the prosecutors part not to let that out yet and you know prosecutors not gonna show his cards or in this case she and when she's got three other defendants to try so they're still going to hold it close to the vast.

MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?
"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff

Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?
"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.
