Doc at Shortstop
Doc Adams on the shortstop position from the February 29, 1896 Sporting News interview.
“I used to play shortstop, and I believe I was the first to occupy that place, as it had formerly been left uncovered. At different times I have, however, played in every position except that of pitcher. We had a splendid catcher in the person of Charles S. Debost, who would be a credit to the position even to-day, I am sure. He was a good batter also, and a famous player in his day.Thw Spoering Newa (February 29, 1896)
John Thorn tweeted the reason for the often asked question “why is 6 used for the shortstop position when scoring baseball?”
