Dagoberto "Bert" Campaneris was a shortstop who came up in the Athletics organization in the early 1960s, before the team moved from Kansas City to Oakland. Campaneris played for the A's from 1964 through 1976, playing on the Athletics' championship teams in the 1970s. He was a key part of the Oakland championships, despiet being overshadowed by the superstars around him. In his first game in the majors on July 23, 1964 he hit two home runs, including one on the first pitch thrown to him in the major leagues. He played for the Texas Rangers from 1976 to 1979, the California Angels in 1979 to 1981, and finished his career with the New York Yankees in 1983. Campaneris was with the Athletics when he accomplished the feat of playing every position in a game on September 8, 1965 against the California Angels. The Angels won the game 5-3 in 13 innings. Campaneris left the game with two out in the ninth. No player had done it before, and three players - Minnesota's Cesar Tovar (9/22/66), Texas' Scott Sheldon (9/6/00) and Detroit's Shane Halter (10/1/00) have done it since. No National League player has ever done it.

How many players have played every position?

At least four. The first major league player to perform the stunt was shortstop Bert Campaneris of the Kansas City A's on September 8, 1965. Against the California Angels, he played his regular position in the first inning, switched to second base in the second and moved to third base in the third. He played left field, center field and right field in the next three innings, respectively, and then played first base in the seventh. In the eighth inning, the ambidextrous Campaneris took the mound and pitched to left-handed batters left handed and right-handers right handed. In the ninth inning, he went behind the plate to catch. Other players who have duplicated the feat: Cesar Tovar of the Minnesota Twins in 1968, and Scott Sheldon of the Texas Rangers and Shane Halter of the Detroit Tigers in 2000.
