Tex Sets MLB Mark For Homering From Both Sides of the Plate

The players Tex passed were Eddie Murray, and former Yankee Chili Davis.

“I grew up in Baltimore, and Eddie was such a great player,” Teixeira said. “And (Eddie) being a switch hitter, I always messed around as a switch hitter in the backyard. I started playing baseball at a really young age in the backyard — just Wiffle ball — and when I had a few swings right handed, I’d switch over left-handed and try to hit one over the fence left handed. So that record’s pretty special.”
