Milwaukee Brewers minor-leaguer Nathan Orf plays 9 positions

Milwaukee Brewers prospect Nathan Orf had a memorable end to the season on Sunday, playing all nine positions for the High-A Brevard County Manatees.

Orf is an infielder who started the game behind the plate, then played an inning each at first base, second base, third base, shortstop, left field, center field and right field before taking the mound to start the ninth inning.

He got Dunedin Blue Jays left fielder Nick Baligod to bounce out to third base and was taken out of the game by manager Joe Ayrault.

The Manatees lost to the Blue Jays 7-3. Orf was 0-for-2 with a walk and handled four chances at three different positions.

Orf finished the season hitting .288/.388/.386 in 123 games, scoring 66 runs with 30 doubles, four triples, two home runs and 43 RBI.

Orf signed with the Brewers after being undrafted coming out of Baylor University in 2013. He did a little of everything for the Manatees this year—before Sunday, that is—playing 54 games at second base, 30 in right field, eight in left field, three at third base, two in center field and 25 as the designated hitter.

The 24-year-old hit .312/.448/.413 in 43 games for Rookie-level Helena in 2013 and skipped Low-A to earn assignment at Brevard County this season.
