WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Thursday just so happens to be National Left Handed Day in Westchester County and across the nation.

To celebrate, here's some fun facts about left-handers.

  • Three of the last four presidents, including Barack Obama, have been left-handed.
  • Left-handers tend to excel in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing.
  • Some famous left-handed athletes: swimmer Mark Spitz, former Yankees Ron Guidry and Andy Pettitte, and baseball legend Babe Ruth.
  • Left-handers tend to hit puberty four or five months after right-handers.
  • One in four Apollo astronauts were left-handed.

More information is available online at the Left Handers Day website.
