Those 3 had career OBPs of .301, .306, and .315.

A different era.

I didn't remember that he played for Pittsburgh, still striking batters out. Guy threw 305 innings in 1970, and played 2nd too.

A lefty playng second? I mean, really.

Susan Langs at MLB:

• On May 11, Ohtani started at the Astros, struck out 10 and then moved
to right field to remain in the game to hit. He became the third player
in the modern era (since 1900) to strike out 10 or more batters and play
a non-pitcher position in a game, according to Elias. He joined Sam
McDowell on July 6, 1970 (15 K’s, played 2B), and Harvey Haddix on Sept.
28, 1958 (11 K’s, played RF).
