Default Show us your favorite ballplayer playing a different sport

Here's mine:

Johnny Vander Meer playing golf in Lake Worth, FL prior to spring training in 1939.

I was a bit surprised to see that the famous lefty double no-hit hurler played golf right handed, but noted that he batted as a switch hitter during his playing career.

Sorry for the pretty worthless image. Though it's not a photo, it represents Hall of Famer Elmer Flick's golfing prowess. The 6.5-inch trophy is engraved:

27 C.C.

EXPERT TROPHY

Jan.-June 1914

* B * G * C *

CUP

Won by

ELMER FLICK

Here's a shot of Nick Altrock golfing. Though he's a righty just like Vander Meer, his approach is a little bit... different...
