Softball Pitcher Switches Hands

No Tommy John for Sierra Amundson.

The road to recovery from Tommy John is a long one. But high school softball pitcher Sierra Amundson opted to spend what would have been rehab time learning to pitch left-handed.

Even without Tommy John, she's now far enough along in the rehab process to start throwing right-handed again, so as a situational reliever, she's the perfect weapon.
