Re: Lefty vs. Righty
I absolutely think you should let him continue to bat and throw lefty. Plus, if he is truly a righthander, then his master eye will probably be his right eye and his right (lead) hand will be stronger, improving his hitting.
If he has talent, he has a much better chance of helping the Reds as a lefty than as a righty. A much larger percentage of the left-handed population gets to play professional baseball than that of right-handers.
I wish I had forced my son to bat lefty when he was younger (or at least try it). He is a good hitter and fielder, not fast, but is good at 1B and 3B. If he hit left-handed, he might have a shot . . .
