In baseball, switch-hitters are a rare breed. Being able to bat from both sides of the plate makes it a lot easier for managers to put a player in a lineup, and they don't have to worry about facing left-handed or right-handed pitchers on a given day.
This select group of players makes up some of the best in the game's history, people who are known as all-time greats first and great switch-hitters second. The top handful of players may be obvious, but those in the sixth through 25th spots are also players with nice careers.
The following are 25 of baseball's best switch-hitters. All stats and career splits noted are from Baseball-Reference.com.
