Celebrate International Left-Handers Day with the Rockets

Just about roughly 90 percent of the human population is right-hand dominant, an overwhelming majority. However, August 13th presents the opportunity to recognize the other ten percent as it is International Left-Handers Day.

While many lefties have had to adapt to a society governed by right-handed tools, one area that has embraced their uniqueness has been sports. Sports tend to over-highlight just how many left-handers there actually are in the world because the demand to find an unorthodox skillset brings a higher concentration of these sinistral individuals together.

Anytime that you see a left-handed athlete for the first time, you might casually point it out, at least I do.
