Last year right after the ALDS our partners at BreakingT produced the now-iconic Jose Bautista bat flip t-shirt so when switch-pitcher Pat Venditte was called up I them to make "The Glove Flip" t-shirt as an homage to the original and to celebrate Venditte's ambidexterity.
The Glove Flip captures Pat Venditte switching from pitching with his right hand to his left hand and shows his special ambidextrous glove. He is the first pitcher in major league history to really be able to pitch with both arms, which can make it pretty confusing when he faces a switch-hitter, especially if umpire Bob Davidson is there trolling:
This design is screenprinted on the same soft cotton t-shirt base used for "The Bat Flip" and is an approved, official licensed product of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
Props go out to Roman (@BadNewsJays) for the idea.

In addition, BreakingT is doing a market trial for women's cut tees with the original Bautista shirt. You can follow the links here to purchase those:
