I found this interesting and didn't see it posted anywhere.

Apparently Alexei was hitting left handed and doing quite well at it. I couldn't imagine if the Sox made him a switch hitter, but that would be something. Wonder why they would have him do that though, unless he was just messing around.

He was probably just screwing around and ran into a few. I doubt they'd make him a switch hitter.

He was a switch hitter while he was in Cuba. When he came he decided to only hit right handed because he could hit for more power. Greg Walker told the story at Soxfest.

It's actually good to do a little hitting in the other box. In college we would do that because they say that it straightens your non dominant eye. If you bat righty your left eye is stronger because you use it much more while batting and vice versa.

I stand corrected.
