Following a wild lefty toss to the backstop, he walks Hal Morris. Remaining as a southpaw, though, he gets Eddy Taubensee to ground out. Finally, returning the ball to his right hand, he retires Bret Boone on a ground out. Harris uses a special six-finger glove, which is sent to the Hall of Fame. Before Harris, Bert Campaneris was the last pitcher to use both hands in a professional game, doing it in 1962 for Daytona Beach in the Florida State League. The only major leaguers to toss with each hand are: Tony Mullane (July 18, 1882); Larry Corcoran (June 10, 1884); Elton "Icebox" Chamberlain (May 9, 1888); Tony Mullane again (July 14, 1893).
