Thats pretty cool.  Pitched 1/3 of an inning getting a ground ball out.

So I'm currently reading Veek as in Wreck which is Bill Veek's autobiography.

This sounds exactly like something he would have done when he owned the Brewers as a minor league team.

The book is awesome, by the way, for anyone who cares to read it.

There have actually been four major leaguers to play all nine positions in one game. The first, was Bert Campaneris, who not only played all nine positions in one game, when he pitched he threw left handed to left handed hitters and right handed to right handed hitters.

I think they should try this tonight against the Cubs.

Elian Herrera has played 2nd, 3rd, SS, RF, CF, and LF in separate games this year. It's not the same thing, but it is a thing.

I think Brock Holt has played every position except pitcher and catcher for the Red Sox this season.

I wonder how many of the other guys who have done it didn't play the entire game.

So the situation was last game of the season, no playoff spot on the line and their opponent scored five times in the top of the first. Eh, why not? Knock yourself out, kid. It's nice of the manager to let him do that.

Can't hurt.  Maybe it will wake up the damn bats.

In 2000 Scott Heldon did it with the Rangers entering the game in the fourth. He struck out he only batter he faced. Again they were down big early (10-1 after the second). The other three were planned form the start.

I guess the only way to top that is to play every position and record a put-out or assist at each spot.

Cubs win 4-2. Cards are 3 outs from taking 1st place.

It's actually written. We only ganked them from five games back, according to the Atlanta 2011 rule we needed to be at least ten.

That book is a surprisingly fun read. I love the give-a-ways he would do during games/before games. "Seat A-42 come down and claim your prize!"  / Guy walks down to applause \ "Here is your prize! Three full length wooden ladders! Yes, you have to take them now, no you can't leave them here. No we don't care if there is no room at your seat."
