For a minor league player, versatility is often seen as the path to the majors, but Milwaukee Brewers prospect Nathan Orf took that to a completely different level Sunday as he played all nine positions for the Class A Brevard County Manatees. An infielder by trade, Orf began the game at catcher and ended it after recording an out in his first ever professional appearance as a pitcher. "[Manager Joe Ayrault] just said he was gonna try to get me all nine, he had to make a phone call to see if I could get on the mound, and I think he had to plead with somebody just to get me one batter and nothing more," Orf told MiLB.com. "I appreciate him. He's been great for me all year and a boost in confidence when things aren't going great. He's been a great manager to play for." In order, Orf played catcher, first base, second base, third base, shortstop, left field, center field, right field and finally pitcher. He even had a brief stint as the first base coach.
