Bill 'Spaceman' Lee plays nine positions in San Rafael
It was a losing effort for the record books.
The Spaceman played all nine. Positions, that is.
Former major league pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee -- the eccentric starter for the Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos, who last played in the major leagues in 1982 -- started at catcher, played the outfield, pitched and played all four spots in the infield for the San Rafael Pacifics last night, according to reports.
Lee, 66, played for San Rafael last year when he threw a complete game at 65.
Lee became the fifth professional baseball player to play all nine spots for the first-place Pacifics, who lost the game 4-1, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
Things went a bit rocky, as Lee caught the first inning and allowed two passed balls, one of which scored a run.
