Amphibious Pitcher

This hilarious headline appeared in the print edition of the East Oregonian Saturday. I think they’re ascribing super powers to pitcher Pat Venditte. Or “amphibious” fits into the space easier than “ambidextrous.” Or it could be a sly reference to a Yogi Berra quote: “He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious.”

The truth is that headline errors like this happen all the time, and some of them go down in history. There are quite a few ways it happens; some that can’t be fixed easily and others that will cost someone their job. Read about them in an article titled Regretting the error: A life in newspapers at Roamin’ Gnomials.  -via Metafilter
