Recalling Cesar Tovar

January 11, 2019

One of my favorite players was the versatile and talented Caesar Tovar.

Mr. Tovar is one of a handful of players to play all 9 positions in the field in a game.

He helped the Minnesota Twins win legitimate “one fourth” divisional titles under managers Billy Martin in 1969 and Cal Ermer in 1970.

 

I know I had the above baseball card.

Tovar was the second player to play all 9 fielding positions in a major league game. There are now 5.

The first player to do so was Bert Campaneris in 1965. When Tovar did it three years after Campaneris, his first position was pitcher.

Campaneris was the first batter he faced.
