Andrew Romine Became the Fifth Player EVER to Play All Nine Positions in One Game On Saturday (No, Seriously)

Interesting

The Detroit Tigers had long been eliminated from contention when they took the field against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, so they decided to have a little fun with one of their last regular season games.

And by fun, I mean they had 31-year-old Andrew Romine flex his versatility by playing all nine positions on the field in one game. Seriously. He played all nine positions, including pitcher and catcher in one game.

Take a look:

Wow. That’s impressive as hell.

It’s also just the fifth time in Major League Baseball history that anyone has tackled the feat. Interestingly, the last player to do it, former Tiger Shane Halter – did it on the final day of the 2000 season also against the Twins.

Romine discussed his eventful evening after the game:

You can read about every play he was involved in here at MLB.com, but I think the craziest part of the day was when he earned a hold by getting Miguel Sano, who’s hitting .264/.352/.507 this season, to ground out in the bottom of the 8th inning in a one-run ball game. It may have been with an 85 MPH “fastball,” but if it works it works.

Nicely done, dude. That was something special.
