Hall of Famers are often players who symbolize their status. Derek Jeter is short, Ivan Rodriguez is receiver, Ken Griffey Jr. is center, and so on. Meanwhile, MLB official website reporter David Adler published a feature article about “a player in the Hall of Fame who holds an unexpected place.” For each position select famous players who have played in different positions than the position associated with the name.

Starting pitcher: Goose Gossage
While it was a famous finisher, recording a total of 310 saves, it started in a total of 37 games. Especially during the White Sox era in 1976, he started 29 of 31 games, pitched 224 innings, scored 9 wins, 17 losses and 1 save, and finished 15 games with a 3.94 ERA.
Substitute pitcher: Pedro Martinez
Dodgers director Tommy LaSorda was named backup pitcher because he was concerned about Pedro’s lack of stamina. In the second year of the 1993 major, he played in 65 games (including two starting pitchers), pitched 107 innings, went 10-5, 2 saves, had a 2.61 ERA and 119 strikeouts.
Catcher: Craig Biggio
Known as second baseman, he was a catcher in his major debut. In 1989 he won the Silver Rod Award, and in 1991 he was selected as an All-Star. On September 29, 2007, the day before his last game on active duty, he played only two innings as a catcher.
First Baseman: Mike Schmidt
Said to be the best third baseman in history, but converted to first base in 1985 to create a chance for promising stock Rick Schu (former Nippon-Ham Fighters). The following year, however, he returned to the familiar third base and became his third MVP with home runs and RBIs.
Second Base: Tim Rains
While he was a fast-paced left fielder with a total of 808 stolen bases, he was a minor second baseman. He had the opportunity to defend second base for the first five seasons after he was promoted to Major League Baseball.
Third baseman: Jim Tommy
Cannon, who recorded a total of 612 home runs, was the third baseman in his major debut. In 1996, he won the silver bat as third baseman. In 1997, it switched from third base to first base, adding batting back Matt Williams.
Shortstop: Paul Molitor
In 1978, when Robin Yount was controversial over his golf-switching remarks, he was called up by a major and defended the game, but he was Molitor. Yount returned in May of the same year. Molitor moved to second base, passed center fielder and third base, and served as DH in the 1990s.
Left fielder: Yogi Bella
Although he was a great receiver who supported the Yankees’ golden age, he played in a total of 149 games as a left fielder and 116 games as a right fielder. Especially in 1961, he only played 15 games as a catcher and the main role was left fielder (81 games).
Center fielder: Babe Ruth
After switching to hitter, Ruth mostly defended the right or left wing, but even as a center fielder, he played in a total of 74 games. In his 61 games as the Yankees’ center fielder, he’s averaging 0.384 batting average, 23 homers, 0.509 on-base percentage, 0.787 slugging percentage and 1.296 OPS.
Right Fielder: Johnny Bench
The bench was said to be the best catcher in history, but the catcher was the mainstay until 1980. He held first and third base during his last three years of activity. In addition, there are situations where the outfield is protected. He played 55 games on each of his left and right wings, and a total of 2 games in the midfield.
