Switch-Pitcher In College Baseball Gains  Trending

Baseball has produced many great switch-hitters, but switch-pitchers haven't always been as successful.

Jurrangelo Cijntje offers a special collection of abilities. On Wednesday, the rookie from Mississippi State pitched from both ends, recording seven strikes and allowing just one hit over four scoreless innings.

You've undoubtedly heard of Jurrangelo Cijntje, a switch pitcher, by now. He made his professional debut today, and it's fairly incredible to watch a rookie knocking out opponents at 90+ mph from both ends.

Cijntje can hurl gas with each arm; it's not just a novelty performance. He reached 96 mph as a righty and 92 mph as a southpaw, according to Codify.

Cijntje, a product of the Netherlands, was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 18th round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of Florida, but he remained loyal to the Georgia Bulldogs.

He is more versatile than just a southpaw hurler. Cijntje, a switch-hitter and natural southpaw, played shortstop for Champagnat Catholic School.

The 19-year-old said he wanted to throw and bat, but in Mississippi State's first five games, he hasn't made it to the plate.
