Covering A Lot Of Ground

The First MLB player to play all 9 poistions in a single game was Bert Campaneris, way back in 1965. SS-OF? You don't know the half of it, Topps!

The Minnesota Twins have been connected to most of these feats - the second time a player made the trip around the field was in 1968. It was completed by Twins utility man Cesar Tovar.

 Here's the back, with a healthy write up of the "versatile Venezuelan"


Scott Sheldon played all nine for the Rangers against the White Sox

Shane Halter completed the feat against the Twins

And last night, it was Andrew Romine, again against the Minnesota Twins. Congratulations to Andrew for completing this rare feat! Enjoy your Topps NOW card.

  1. Gotta love Charlie Finley and his shenanigans for getting Campy to do this stunt. Look at the trend he set. It was cool to watch Romine's highlights and see him in action... including the final out.
