I remember Concepcion pitching. He struck out a batter on a BIG looping curveball and walked off the mound with a huge grin on his face. I'll always remember that.

I don't think he was ever able to persuade them to let him do it, but Concepcion always wanted, in a late-season game after the pennant race had been decided, to play a different position, including pitcher, for each of the nine innings.

He struck out Franklin Stubbs to end the inning, and got a standing ovation from the Dodger Stadium crowd.

Yep that's it. Good memory. I also remember Davey getting tossed in San Francisco. Made a big production of it. Might be my favorite ejection next to Carl Everett head butting Ron Kulpa. I can still see Davey ripping the door open that led back to the tunnel to the clubhouse at Candlestick. Good times.

So Tovar started the game, and gave up no runs, and his team eventually won a one-run game.

Campaneris gave up one run, and his team lost by two runs in the 10th. Without the run Camapneris gave up, his team would have won in 9. That's taking a risk, isn't it?

I didn't know Tovar did it against the A's, with Campaneris at short. I wonder if their paths ever crossed, with an evil eye exchanged. Or maybe Campy threw the bat at him while he was pitching. Those are some crazy box score lines.

Of course, everyone here knows that the last non-pitcher to take the mound for the Reds was in '07, when Eric Milt...Nah. Never mind. Too easy.

Did anyone else notice that Weathers appeared in the last two games that a position player took the mound (both as a Red). Weathers was only here for half a season that year (if even), and didn't come back to the Reds til 2005. Weathers is responsible.

Did you see what David DID in that game against the Giants...I don't think even HE wants to notice that he was in that game. 0.2 ip / 6 hits / 8 ER / 3 bb. Good lord.

Besides one great 8 shut out inning start, Weathers was awful for the Reds that season sporting a 6.21 ERA in 62.1 IP and a 1.81 WHIP. Once he went to the brewers he was terrific with a 3.21 ERA in 47.2 IP and a 1.22 WHIP.

I'm not sure this one really counts, but I witnessed what could be considered one of the greatest position players pitching appearances of all-time.

It was very early in 1967 and my dad and I attended a Sunday afternoon double headers versus the Giants at Crosley Field. Converted reliever Billy McCool started the opener and beat the Giants. Between games, my dad and I were sitting in the box seats along the thirdbase line when I saw Art Shamsky bound out of the dugout and run to leftfield where outfielder Mel Queen was warming up with other outfielders. Shamsky comes up behind Queen and says something in his ear. Queen was all smiles as he ran to the dugout. Minutes later, there is Mel Queen warming up in the Reds' bullpen along the thirdbase line. He would be the starting pitcher in the second game for the Reds

I don't remember who was scheduled to start for the Reds that day, but he was scratched and outfielder Queen was his emergency replacement. Despite having only pitched a few one inning emergency stints in 1966 and one in 1967, Mel Queen actually pitched a complete game shutout versus the Giants that day. His outfielding days were officially over that day, and he went on to win 14 games in 1967.

I've seen hundreds of games, but that one ranks as possibly my most memorable.

DID YOU KNOW??? Bert "Campy" Campaneris left the game in the 9th inning after injuring his shoulder in a home plate collision!!!!

Here's some more info......

SEPT 8, 1965 ...Kansas City A's shortstop Bert Campaneris becomes the first major leaguer to play all nine positions in one game.

Campaneris moved from one position to another at the start of each inning. He made an error while playing right field in the 6th inning for his only miscue of the ball game. He pitched the 8th inning and faced his cousin and Angels’ outfielder Jose Cardenal. Campaneris won bragging rights when Cardenal popped out. He allowed just one run on a hit and two walks.

In the 9th inning, he strapped on the ‘tools of ignorance’ as the A’s catcher, but had to leave the game after injuring his shoulder in a home plate collision. The Angels won the contest in 13 innings, 5-3.

I don't remember who was scheduled to start for the Reds that day, but he was scratched and outfielder Queen was his emergency replacement. Despite having only pitched a few one inning emergency stints in 1966 and one in 1967, Mel Queen actually pitched a complete game shutout versus the Giants that day. His outfielding days were officially over that day, and he went on to win 14 games in 1967.

I've seen hundreds of games, but that one ranks as possibly my most memorable.

I spoke with Billy McCool in 2000 and he told me that the Reds' pitchers were in awe of Queen's stuff in those 1966-1967 days. McCool also said Gerry Arrigo had great stuff but could not carry it from the bullpen mound to the center of the diamond.

The weak-hitting outfielder Queen made his first big league pitching appearance on 7-16-66. He made a total of 7 relief appearances for the '66 Reds. He worked on his pitching skills during the winter. Queen started off his 1967 pitching by making a relief appearance on 4-14-67 vs Houston and allowed 3 hits, 1 HR, and 3 ER's in 1 inning of work.

APRIL 16, 1967...Queen makes his first big league start and throws a complete game six-hit shutout over the Giants in Cincinnati. Queen walks 2 and whiffs 8.

Queen picked up his 2nd win of the '67 season in his next start on April 22. Allowed 0 ER's in 5 2/3 innings.

Queen's ERA did not rise above 3 until it went up to 3.01 on July 6. Queen allowed just 6 ER's in his final 5 September starts. Finished the year at 14-8, 2.76 ERA in 195.2 innings.

I last saw Queen in Spring Training/Florida about 8 or 9 years ago. I think by then he was a minor league pitching coach for the Toronto Blue Jays. Saw him hiding behind a shack beyond the outfield fence sucking on a cigarette. I read "Q U E E N" on the back of his jersey and said to myself, "Holy Cow, that's ole Melvin Junior." His dad pitched for the Yankees and Pirates in the 1940's and 50's.

And with Micah Owings on the squad we should probably go ahead and address the opposite.
When was the last time a pitcher played the field?
On May 1, 1970 Willy Granger entered the game in the ninth inning with a 6-4 lead. Granger recorded the first two outs of the ninth inning and then moved to left field replacing Bernie Carbo, while Don Gullett came in to face Willie Stargell (he struck him out to earn the save).

OK. Here we go.

Friday night, September 29, 1961

Reds vs Pirates @ Forbes Field

Top of 9th inning...Jerry Lynch bats for Wally Post. Lynch strikes out and is ejected after jawing with umpire Stan Landes about the third strike.

(I am assuming that the intention was for Lynch to bat and then play LF in the bottom of the 9th inning)

Bottom of 9th inning...Pitcher Jim Maloney enters the game in LF with Gus Bell moving from LF to RF. Pirates' Bob Skinner flied out to Maloney in LF for out #1. That was Maloney's only fielding chance as an outfielder.

Reds win, 8-1. Reds' lefty Jim O'Toole picks up his 19th victory of the season.
