The Lefty Hit is a phenomenon that occurs when you have a runner on first base and a lefty hitting. Any resulting ground ball hit to the right side is almost always a base hit because the fucking 1st baseman is cheating towards the bag, guarding the baserunner. The most frustrating example of the lefty hit is when Alan Trammell leads off with a hit for Detroit. On many occasions, the 2-5 hitters (2-7 if you sub Dave Bergman for Chet Lemon) will all get the lefty hit, leaving you in quite a jam.
