As any red-blooded North American schoolboy or girl knows, Roy Halladay is a famous right-handed pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. Halladay is famous because he's won two Cy Young Awards (and finished second in the voting two more times), and he's thrown a perfect game (plus a no-hitter in his first playoff appearance). All with his right arm. Right?

Yes. Well, unless he was just foolin'. Because, according to the bobblehead dolls of his likeness that sell on MLB.com, Roy ain't no righty. Normal righty, anyhow. Thanks to Zoo With Roy, the first bolg blog to break this nation-wide, for shedding some light on this left-wing scandal.

If this bobblehead is the truth, Halladay is either a famous LEFT-handed pitcher who's been faking us out, or a righty who has sustained a head injury, thinks he's a lefty and doesn't know how to wear a glove or stand on a pitching mound any longer. He also looks like Billy Bob Thornton from "Sling Blade." Or some combination therein.

Note: MLB.com has since removed the Halladay bobblehead from its site.
