    What pitcher in a single season with a minimum of twenty decisions played the most games at other positions??

    I have 65 for Doc Crandall in 1914. Seems like a lot, but I don't know if it's the most.

      On further review, I have Ruth with 72 in 1918.

        Damn, I specifically meant to exclude the Babe. As asked that is correct.

        Now let's try "with more than 20 decisions" as the criteria. No, It was not Doc Crandall.

          Completely random guess: Dave Foutz in 1884? He was 41-17 or something, and I know he started in the outfield when he didn't pitch.

            In the years Foutz would have had enough decisions he didn't play that much in the field.

              Harry Howell in 1902 played in 71 games in a non-pitching capacity (batting .268 and hitting 11 triples [for tenth place in that category]), and also had a 9 and 15 record as a pitcher.

                  Somebody could have figured that out just from the thread title.

                    But, you didn't, didja? :o Certainly that was the starting point for me, but I began with Wally, but having two "H"'s in the last name was not likely without a "t" or a "c". So, I worked my way around to Harry and then so on.

                        Harry Howell is incorrect. Excluding Babe Ruth who by the way doesn't have the most either there are two players with more games at other positions and one who is tied with Harry Howell.

                          You're taking away my medal for getting the intended answer!??! Dang... I feel like a Ukrainian woman shotputter after the drug test results came back!

                          Oh, I love 'em, particularly when there is no other way to drill down for an answer. Keep 'em coming. . .

                            This question is still unanswered and in fact the answer to this question is rather obvious.

                              91 by Doc Crandall in 1914?
