Switch (band) Switch is an R&B/funk band that found fame recording for the Gordy label in the late 1970s, releasing hit songs such as "There'll Never Be", "I Call Your Name" and "Love Over & Over Again". Switch influenced bands such as DeBarge, which featured the siblings of Switch band members Bobby and Tommy DeBarge.

Richie Scheinblum Scheinblum played outfield in the major leagues from 1965 to 1974. A switch-hitter, he hit .263 with 13 homers and 127 RBIs in his career.
Switch hitter Management also had a say in the switch-hitting careers of Bob Gibson and Dwight Gooden. Both Gibson and Gooden—each right-handed, and a fine hitting pitcher—had reached the major leagues as a switch-hitter, and both their teams required them to bat only right-handed, to reduce the possibility of their pitching arms being hit by a pitch.
Kill Switch...Klick Sebasstian came up with the band name while working at Microsoft as a landscape grunt. As the story goes, the mower he was using started to sputter and cough- so he thought aloud "Better hit the Kill Switch." Says Sebasstian:
Frankie Frisch Frisch finished his playing career in 1937. His career statistics totaled a .316 batting average, still the highest ever for a switch hitter, with 2880 hits, 1532 runs, 105 home runs and 1244 RBI. He also stole 419 bases in his nineteen playing seasons. His hit total stood as the record for switch-hitters until Pete Rose surpassed it in 1977. Frisch also hit .300 for his career from each side of the plate; the only other switch-hitter with more than 5,000 at-bats with this distinction is Chipper Jones.
Blackjack Switch The small variations in dealer drawing rules between casinos which are found in blackjack are also found in Blackjack Switch, such as whether the dealer must stand or hit on soft 17 (a hand totalling 7 but containing an ace), whether even money/insurance is offered, whether a player may double after a split, and whether a player may hit split aces.
Switch hit A switch hit is a modern cricket shot believed to have been first used by Kevin Pietersen on 15 June 2008 in a one-day international against New Zealand. Pietersen actually played the shot for the first time off Muttiah Muralitharan in a test match against Sri Lanka in 2006. The test occurred May 25-28, 2006. Despite the shot becoming a fad due to Pietersen's successful execution of it (there is certainly no argument about that), it is believed that Jonty Rhodes actually executed this shot first for a six. He hit a switch-hit six off Darren Lehmann in a one day international between Australia and South Africa on March 27, 2002. A switch hit involved effectively changed from a right-hander to a left-hander just before the ball was delivered by the bowler for the purpose of executing the shot. It is a variation of the reverse sweep, in which the stance is changed during the bowler's delivery action, has been compared to switch-hitting in baseball. Australia's David Warner is a notable user of this shot and was endorsed to use a double-faced bat in Twenty20 cricket.
Pull switch An electric pull switch is attached to a toggle type switch: one pull to switch on and next pull to switch off.

Optical switch A passive optical switch does not have optical gain elements. An active optical switch has optical gain elements. An all-optical switch is a transparent optical switch in which the actuating signal is also optical. Thus, in an all-optical switch, an optical signal is used to switch the path another optical signal takes through the switch.

Crossbar switch In electronics, a crossbar switch (cross-point switch, matrix switch) is a collection of switches arranged in a matrix configuration. A crossbar switch has multiple input and output lines that form a crossed pattern of interconnecting lines between which a connection may be established by closing a switch located at each intersection, the elements of the matrix. Originally, a crossbar switch consisted literally of crossing metal bars that provided the input and output paths. Later implementations achieved the same switching topology in solid state semiconductor chips. The cross-point switch is one of the principal switch architectures, together with a rotary switch, memory switch, and a crossover switch.
Mark Teixeira While playing the San Diego Padres on July 3, Teixeira hit two home runs, including his 400th career home run. He became only the fifth switch-hitter to hit 400 home runs in a career. He followed teammate and fellow switch-hitter Carlos Beltrán, who had also hit his 400th career home run for the Yankees less than two months earlier on May 15. Another former teammate who also accomplished this feat was Chipper Jones, with whom Teixeira briefly played as a member of the Atlanta Braves.
Latching switch A latching switch is a switch that maintains its state after being activated. A push-to-make, push-to-break switch would therefore be a latching switch - each time you actuate it, whichever state the switch is left in will persist until the switch is actuated again.
