That rules.

I know that it was Jeff Nelson that they put out in LF for one batter, and it was sometime in 1993...

No one knew what the hell was going on. I don't think they lost the DH in that game though, just the guy in LF.

That would be fun to watch.

Definitely.


Brilliant!


It was seriously awesome. The fans, the commentators, everyone was in shock. No one had any idea what was happening and why the pitcher was going out to play the OF. It would have gotten really interesting if the batter had hit a ball out to the pitcher...


An outfield assist would have occurred if a runner tagged up from 3rd :-D

Ok, I found the box score (assist to Tavish for hooking me up with the link to the site I needed).

July 15, 1993 was the date and Jeff Nelson recorded four outs, but Dennis Powell recorded one out in there somewhere. Nelson went from pitcher, to LF, back to pitcher. The link to the boxscore is below, and it's funny to look at. I can't recall exactly how the order of outs went, and the box score doesn't help because they only list the pitchers once down below in the pitching summary, but anyway... For your enjoyment.
