4. Babe Ruth held the record for most consecutive shut out innings pitched in the WS until

Whitey Ford broke it in the 1960s. Amazing.

5. Bill 'Spaceman' Lee did it too, only he was the oldest professional baseball player at the time

Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee Plays All Nine Positions in Game for Independent San Rafael Pacifics

by Zack Cox on Thu, Aug 22, 2013


Bill Lee is an ageless wonder.

Though he retired from Major League Baseball more than 30 years ago, the former Red Sox pitcher known to fans as “Spaceman” continues to pop up each summer on diamonds around the country.

The southpaw tossed 5 2/3 innings and picked up the win in a game for the independent Brockton Rox in 2010, pitched a complete game for the San Rafael Pacifics last summer and made appearances in countless celebrity and charity baseball games.

But Lee’s most impressive feat came Wednesday, when, at age 66, he returned to the Pacifics and played all nine positions in a single game — on Senior Citizens Day, no less. Lee began the game behind the plate before making stops at each outfield position, pitching a scoreless fifth inning and rotating across the infield from left to right over the final four frames.

San Rafael does not appear to be a team scared of mixing up its lineup (Pacifics closer Colin Allen made a highlight-reel catch to end the eighth inning — while playing center field) and this particular stunt is usually pulled at least one or twice in the minors each season, but for it to be accomplished by a man legitimately old enough to be some of his teammates’ grandfather is truly impressive.
