Mine was righty with minor switch until 14 then began to switch.  Really focused on lefty last year when preparing for college and knew as a LHP and DH they would not want to show left shoulder to RHP's in SEC.  Has swung 95% this summer leftie.  it takes a lot of work to be successful.  What is logic?  If logic is just to do it then total waste of time and energy.  Become a great rightie. 

 

I agree. Most of the top hitters in mlb are currently righties. Trout, Betts and miggy did ok as righties.

There currently is a trend in Latin America towards switch hitting  and many young good Latin hitters are switch hitters (lindor, Jose Ramirez, wander Franco, albies) but those kids have basically unlimited practice time.
