In honour of International Left-Handers Day, here is a  fun fact out of left field! 

Did you know that...

"Lefties — also known as southpaws — have an advantage over right-handed opponents in certain sports, especially one-on-one showdowns in boxing, tennis, and baseball. Because lefties account for only 10 percent of the population, righties don't train against lefties as often and are less comfortable facing off against them. Conversely, lefties are used to being in the minority and can adjust more easily, giving them a competitive edge." (Jensen, 2021)
