    Raise you left hand if you area lefty. And name a celebrity who is/was a lefty.

    Chuck Conners of The Rifleman TV show was a lefty.

    Rocky Balboa and me

    #3 8 months ago

    Lefty Grove. I bat left-handed.

    #4 8 months ago

    I also play pinball lefty

    #5 8 months ago

    Rod Laver. (I lettered in tennis in HS.)

    Mom was also left-handed, so all early teacher attempts to "retrain" me were rebuffed.

    #6 8 months ago

    Me and Tom Cruise

    #7 8 months ago

    Ambidextrous, can even write with the left hand.

    President Barack Obama is Left Handed.

    #8 8 months ago

    Southpaw here too. Same as my favorite pitcher when I was a kid, Frank Viola. (He won the Cy Young in '88)

    #9 8 months ago

    Me and Bobby Orr are here to join the lefty party

    #10 8 months ago

    Left handed here

    #11 8 months ago

    Dominant left hand here but can write and use utensils with either hand. Throw right. Guitar right. Scissors left. (Damn it!!)

    Left handed celeb? Keanu Reeves

    #12 8 months ago

    I was ambidextrous when I was younger. Now I am right handed, but I still hold my knife in my right hand and use the fork in my left. I prefer to wear my watch on my right wrist as well.

    Oh, Whoopi Goldberg is my celeb.

    Lefty here. Lefty everything! Just like Babe Ruth and Judy Garland.

    #14 8 months ago

    Lefty here! Parents tried making me change to a righty when I was young, (prolly b/c of some 60's research that stated being a lefty was bad...lol) played baseball throwing/catching with both hands but I always batted righty.

    Daughter is a lefty also!

    Bruce Willis-yippee ki yay!

    #15 8 months ago

    I'm back. I throw left but swing right. Kick with left foot but play guitar right handed. Fork with left hand. When I wear a watch (only rarely) I like it on my left wrist.

    Ringo Starr is a lefty but his grandma was not having a left handed grandson so she made him get a right handed drum set which he plays as a lefty. I never knew any of this. Sure, I knew Paul McCartney was a lefty, but Ringo was a surprise for me.

    I notice lefties in movies all of the time anymore, but I missed Tom Cruise.

    In Shawshank Redemption in the cafeteria scene where Tim Robbins character is looking at that worm in his food, I see three lefties sitting at other tables.

    #16 8 months ago

    I am a lefty. ...Robert Plant, Jimi Hendrix, Ronald Reagan.. all Lefty’s

    I truly don’t consider Throwing Lefty but batting Righty the ‘opposite’. Call me crazy (which I am) ... I have always believed that your primary eye was a key factor in determining whether you would feel more comfortable batting Lefty vs Righty at a young age. Batting from the right side allows you to track the ball better with your left eye.
    I did assimilate certain things....for example scissors righty (and batting I guess). I also use a screw driver etc with either hand. But throw a frisbee much better righty.

    #17 8 months ago

    Me too - but I only write with my left hand, I use my right to hammer things and use tools in the usual 'right handed' way.

    #18 8 months ago

    I’m left handed - Ned Flanders

    Robert Plant? Really? Get out a here. And Reagan, too? Damn.

    When I was a little kid and learning "baseball" my dad would pitch and my mom would stand behind me and help me hold the bat. She was right handed and that is how I learned. My dad was right handed 99.9999%; But he swung left handed.

    #20 8 months ago

    I was left handed until a 300lb nun “converted” me to right handedness . It aggravated her that I would drag my hand over the paper, smearing the #2 lead as I went. I blame her for everything that has gone wrong in my life. You could say that she is my “Punch/nun”. That’s how I feel and so do I.

    #21 8 months ago

    Left handed as well......I think we are a dying breed.....

    Brought Bruce.....

    #22 8 months ago

    I'm a lefty too. Can't do anything with the right hand at all. Both my parents are right handed, yet my sister and I are both left handed. Odd.

    #23 8 months ago

    I'm a lefty too, isn't everyone?
    My moji is also a lefty!

    #24 8 months ago
    Quoted from cottonm4:

    And Reagan, too? Damn.

    I just looked this up. Ford, Reagan, G.H.W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama all leftys, among other presidents.

    Quoted from BALL_LESS1:

    I grew up in a very small town and had the same teacher for grades 3, 4, & 5. She wouldn't let me flip the spirals on my notebook or use a left handed notebook because we handed in our notebooks and she wanted them all the same, so I always had to write with my hand on the spiral. Then she would mercilessly ridicule me about how my handwriting was always so terrible on the left part of the page but better on the right. My mom was a teacher and talked to her about it but nothing changed.

    #25 8 months ago

    I am both for many activities. If this counts.....I brought

    Palmela Handerson.

    Albert Einstein was another lefty.

    I'm a lefty too. Can't do anything with the right hand at all.

    You must have some interesting pinball sessions

    #30 8 months ago

    Are we really it? Come on lefties, show your pride!

    #31 8 months ago

    Another lefty here.

    Aristotle and Leonardo da Vinci also were left handed.

    #32 8 months ago
    Quoted from pin2d:

    Cross handed here.

    Is cross handed the same as ambidextrous?

    #33 8 months ago

    Another leftie reporting for duty. And M.C. Escher’s along for the ride.

    #34 7 months ago

    I’m also left handed.

    I believe that all of the best people in the world are left handed, and that it is possibly the next step in human evolution.

    How about 90’s musicians; Kurt cobain, Noel Gallagher and billy Corgan. All lefties.

    Here’s a couple more.

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    No, that would be cool though. I have dominance but it varies depending on the activity. Write with my right hand, throw left, eat right, golf left, kick right, etc.

    #37 7 months ago

    Left handed tech.

    Aldrin was native left handed but changed during training.

    #38 7 months ago

    Me and Kurt

    #39 7 months ago

    I'm a lefty but also mixd up. Write left, scissors right, bat left and throw right. Unless it's a bowling ball then left.

    Isn't Martin Sheen a lefty?

    #40 7 months ago

    Lefty here

    And so is Tony Iommi from black sabbath \m/

    #41 7 months ago

    i'm a lefty (but bowl right handed - and have a 300!)

    Bill Clinton

    #42 7 months ago

    I'm a lefty, as is Tina Fey, the comedienne (and the damsel from Medieval Madness).

    Do I get extra points for naming a pinball related celebrity?

    #43 7 months ago

    Another lefty here. Throw left, bat right, kick with right leg. Robert Redford - left handed.

    My dad is a lefty... I am a lefty... my son is a lefty. Awesomeness runs in my family.

    #45 3 months ago

    I'm a lefty, and so was Don Adams ("Sorry about that, Chief").
