Brewers' prospect plays all nine positions
Oh, you played shortstop and second base at different points throughout high school? Yeah, that's great.
But what if you played catcher, first base, second base, shortstop, third base, left field, center field, right field and finally, you pitched. And what if you did it all in one nine-inning, professional baseball game? That's what Brewers' prospect Nathan Orf did for the Class A Brevard County Manatees on Sunday.
Orf, normally a right fielder, started behind home plate and switched positions every inning in the order you see above. He finished his day on the mound, getting a ground-ball out and leaving the game to a standing ovation. Although the feat has been performed numerous times in the Minors, only four big leaguers have played all nine positions in one contest -- Shane Halter being the most recent in 2000. Unfortunately, we don't have footage of Orf running all over the diamond (he made four plays at three different positions), but we do have this interview courtesy of MiLB.com.
The Manatees lost 7-3 to the Dunedin Blue Jays.
