Bert Campaneris Plays All 9 Positions in One Game

September 8, 1965 – Kansas City Athletics shortstop Bert Campaneris was the very first player in major league history to play all nine positions in one game.  The most interesting part of his feat was when he took the mound in the eighth inning and showed that he was ambidextrous.  Campaneris pitched lefty to lefty hitters and righty to hitters who batted from the right side of the plate.  He allowed just one hit in his one inning  pitched.  Campaneris  caught the last inning.
