On Aug. 13, the world celebrated International Left-Handers Day. The special day allowed everyone to reflect back on some of the greatest athletes ever, but it also allowed Twitter to have some fun.

Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax is arguably the greatest left-handed pitcher in baseball history, but he didn't have the longevity that some other southpaws had. ESPN Stats & Info came up with a couple of good stats to recognize a pair of left-handers.

There were plenty of good submissions.

Here are some other notable left-handers in today's sports world.

As good as all of those lefty athletes are (or were), the next couple of left-handers may be even better.

You be the judge as to who the best lefty athlete is.
