  • The Old Switchero

    Dustin Pedrioa came up as a SS, but is now a 2B.
    Kevin Youkilis came up as a 3B, but is now a 1B.
    Jon Papelbon came up as a SP, but is now a CL.

    Continue this line of Sox players, past or present, who switched from thier original position and succeded at that new position.

      I think there's one player (doesn't he wear dreadlocks or something?) who used to play in RF, but now plays in LF. What's his name again?

        Ted Williams played RF as a rookie (he was a pitcher in HS!).
        Some guy named Ruth was moved from P to the OF and missed his chance to be famous.
        :cap:
        Pesky moved from SS to 3B to accomodate Vern Stephens and then moved back.
        Also...
        Larry Gardner moved to 3B after a year at 2B.
        Tony C played a year in LF and then moved to RF.
        Jimmy Piersall started in RF and settled in CF.
        Petrocelli moved from SS to 3B.
        George Scott moved from 1B to 3B!
        Troy O'Leary moved from RF to LF.

          A certain Long Island native signed as a shortstop but was moved because of the eminent retirement of a certain left fielder.

            Gee, I wonder if either of those two ever became amongst the most famous guys to play off the Green Monstah?
