Bill Ripken broke into the majors as a second baseman and has played the position virtually his entire major-league career. But if he makes the Orioles, much of his playing time probably will be at third base.He's played the position before, for the Texas Rangers. One game in 1993, 18 in 1994. He spent most of 1995 on the left side of the diamond, as the shortstop for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons (and played the position well, according to some scouts)."The throwing part of everything has never bothered me, from second, short or third," Ripken said.

Eddie Gaedel might be the most famous midget ever to appear in a professional baseball game, but he was neither the first nor the most successful. Forty-six years before Gaedel's appearance in St. Louis, a local midget actor named Jerry Sullivan showed up in Baltimore in the uniform of the Buffalo Bisons.With the Bisons trailing their Eastern League opponents, 10-2, in the top of the ninth inning on Sept. 18, 1905, Sullivan was escorted to the plate by teammate Rube Kissinger. With no objections from plate umpire Charlie Simmer or Orioles manager Hugh Jennings, Sullivan faced Baltimore pitcher Fred Burchell.
