Roy Oswalt is now playing leftfield for the Phillies

Remember The Alomar

Recommended Posts

I went to two games in 1970 where Sam McDowell was moved from pitcher to an infield position just so that he wouldn't have to pitch to Frank Howard, then was moved back the following inning. It worked the first time, and sort of backfired the second time when Howard hit a hard grounder in the 1B/2B hole that McDowell (at 1B) couldn't handle. A regular 1B probably would have made the play, but it was scored a hit.
