Noun[edit]

southpaw (plural southpaws)

  1. (informal) One who is left-handed, especially in sports.
  2. (baseball) A left-handed pitcher.
    Since home plate is generally in the southwest corner to avoid glare in the batter's eyes, a southpaw's pitching hand is to the south.
  3. A left-handed writer who, instead of mirroring right-handed writers, turn his or her hand upsidedown in order to put the writing implement in the same position as right-handed writers.
