  • no-hit, no field ... only a pinch runner

    how many players besides Ralph Gagliano* appeared in a major league game only as a pinch runner and never played the field or was announced as a hitter?

    *Ralph pinch-ran for Larry Brown at first base in the ninth inning with one out and the Indians down 9-4. he was quickly eliminated on a force out. Would take a wild guess and say that his career was interrupted by service in Vietnam http://www.baseball-reference.com/mi...d=gaglia001ral Would also add that his brother Phil was notoriously slow afoot. So I wonder if this was a "mercy" PR? Ralph only hit .226 in class A ball in 1964. Wonder why he was even called up? was he with the Indians the entire 1965 season?? he was only signed as an amateur free-agent (in 64). Weird one for me.

    I think Herb Washington appeared as a PR for Oakland in 1974 and 1975.

        True, but he never batted. The rule states that a substitute for the DH becomes the DH. I think it is ridiculous how they score that. When someone pinchhits for the DH, it counts as a pinch-hitting appearance. When someone runs for the DH, it should be PR-DH, not just DH. The encyclopedias have not been consistent on how they list guys like Washington.

          Gary Hargis of the 1979 Pirates is another.

          Infielder Bob Hegman, when asked if he received a World Series ring for playing one inning of one game with the World
          Champion 1985 Kansas City Royals.
