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.”
