Wait, that dude was a catcher?

Chad Finn of the Boston Globe plays one of my favorite games: “remember when that guy used to play a different position?”

Everyone remembers Craig Biggio and Dale Murphy the catcher. But  Carlos Delgado? Raul Ibanez? You may or may not have known, intellectually, that those guys once donned the tools of ignorance, but seeing a picture of their young selves catching is kind of unsettling. Actually, seeing ANY picture of a young Raul Ibanez is unsettling. I think he has been old since he was born.

Lots of former shortstops and stuff too. Kinda weird. Really cool.
