Ep. 221 - MLB position players transition to pitcher & the reverse
Show Notes

What Shohei Ohtani is doing this season is amazing. Just making it to the Major Leagues is incredibly difficult.  How about changing positions from  being a position every day player to a pitcher?  Or a pitcher needing to become a position player in order to stay in the big leagues?  Players like the Cardinal’s Rick Ankiel come to mind but there are plenty of other MLB players who've adapted on the fly in order to remain at the highest level of baseball.  

We also talk about the Olympics again for some reason.
