Birdie Tebbetts wrote an article for the Atlantic in 1949 while playing for the Red Sox. Therein, he talks about all sorts of things, including this:

The average ___ major league career is longer than the average of any other position, and because of this longer experience, he becomes more valuable to his team.

Fill in the blank: what position is Tebbetts talking about?
