Kenny Held Does it All

As many youngsters learn to play the game of baseball, they usually try out each position to see what they like the most and/or what they are the best at. Once they find their niche, they usually stick to it and transition to other spots as they evolve.

However, Kenny Held apparently looks at specialization as a waste of his time and talent.

This Tucson, AZ native is a rookie for the Independent Professional Baseball League’s Grand Prarie Air Hogs. He actually played his college ball at Cameron University, which is in my hometown of Lawton, Oklahoma.

Held normally just plays outfield, but he recently wanted to do something special for the last game of the Air Hogs’ season. He decided that it would be fun to try and play all nine positions in one nine-inning game. On September 3 against the Amarillo Sox, he did just that. In fact, he even came to the mound to close out the game in the 9th inning. He pitched a 1-2-3 inning and solidified an 8-2 victory for his squad. Talk about multi-tasking.

Now, this must have been a site to behold, and it is surely one of the most unique things to happen in a baseball game, but I am positive that there are other distinctive baseball stories out there. Tweet to @MLBFanCave and @KyleOKC and describe the most unique thing that you have ever witnessed while watching a baseball game. Be sure to use the hash tag #MLBFC.
