Larry Stahl batting third? RZ would have had fun with that one.

Yes, that's Ron Gant playing 2B for the Braves.

IIRC, Gant came up as 2b for the Braves and moved to the outfield later on. Maybe after his motorcycle accident?

I think he moved to Cincinnati after his motorcycle accident--I believe the Braves released him. If I remember this right, the Braves moved him to the OF in 1989 or 1990 because his defense just didn't cut it at 2B.
