I'd forgotten Bill Russell started out as an outfielder. He was pretty underwhelming out there, if I am not mistaken, but he was simply waiting for Wills to retire.

Yeah, but he was a 23-year-old rookie shortstop in 1954.

That explains it. I thought he started earlier than that.

That explains it. I thought he started earlier than that.

He played 10 games in 1953 after being signed off the Kansas City Monarchs roster as the first black player in Cubs history.
