Wade Boggs batted lefty but threw righty

He is definately the most decorated, and one of the best. It is up for debate whether he is the best ever at 3rd base.

One of the greatest third basemen ever, Brooks Robinson, wore #5. That's also the number the position is given in box scores. Mike Schmidt wore #20.

We have to confine our answer to the major league level. Yes, in the majors, there have been left-handers who played second base, shortstop and third base. Wee Willie Keelar, a Hall of Famer, played second base, third and shortstop 71 times over his 19-year career from 1892 through 1910. Hal Chase, normally a first baseman, played 36 games at second base between 1905 and 1916. Bill Hulen of the 1896 Phillies played 73 games at shortstop and two at second base in his only season with the club. First baseman Don Mattingly of the Yankees played one game at second base in 1983 and three games at third base in J, 986 despite being left-handed.

I'm not aware of any lefties who have played these positions regularly, but there have been situations where left-handers played them in emergency situations. Don Mattingly had to substitute at third base for the Yankees in the late 80's when their regular third baseman was hurt. Mike Squires (who like Mattingly, usually played first base) caught for the White Sox once in the early 80's.

Yes, sort of. I don't know of any who both bat and throw left, but there are a few who bat left and throw right. Current examples of left-hand hitting third basemen include Hank Blalock http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0FCI/is_7_63/ai_n6108322 and Russ Branyan http://www.baseball-reference.com/b/branyru01.shtml Don Mattingly played one game in 1986, Mike Squires played one game in 1983

Uh, yeah, you have to have a backup first baseman in case your starting one gets injured. And some players can play multiple positions.

Brooksie is a Hall of Famer and the greatest Third Baseman to ever play. His auto'd ball with a Certificate of Authenticity is worth around $150. Selling it on eBay with no COA will probably fetch about $50.

because youre in a wheelchair have u ever been in third person

There has never been any true third party candidates that have been elected to presidential office. The two main parties are the democrats and the republicans.

Yes Chile have been in the world cup, and in 1962 they came in third place as it was held in chile.

Robbie Alomar (probably the best second baseman ever)

Yes they have been relegated from the top flight and even to the third division. They were relegated in 1936, 1959, 1967, 1969,1987 (to the Third Division) and in 2015 to the Football League Championship.

One unique property was that he was the only president ever to have a third term and is the only one who will ever have a third term.

the third Reich is the dumbest thing ever . i never ever ever want to hear those words again OMG!!!!!!

Yes. Patrick Stewart aside, every president so far has been a third party nominee.

yes Currently, the only lefthanded infielders play at first base. But throughout MLB history, there have been a couple of leftys that have played shortstop. Wee Willie Keeler, a Hall of Famer, played second base, third and shortstop 71 times over his 19-year career from 1892 through 1910. Bill Hulen of the 1896 Phillies played 73 games at shortstop and two at second base in his only season with the club.

The third webkinz is the Cheeky Monkey.

There has been two Woodstock. I really thing a third one commemorating the first will be announce in the future.

Not quite yet. There have been talks about a third season to start September 2010

No. Derek Jeter has been a shortstop for his entire career.

has it ever been in an accident

This could only be answered by a third-party site, and the answer was no, it has never been selected.

Are you a retard? I mean really have you ever herd of sports? Derek Jeter- shortstop of the Yankees Alex Rodriguez- third baseman of the Yankees (if i spelt his name wrong sorry) C.C. Sabathia- Pitcher for the Yankees Albert Pujols- First Basemen for the angels And players on the mets and red sox are awful and not athletes and soccer is the WORST sport ever made
