Box Score of the Week

Tampa Bay Rays at Detroit Tigers - July 3, 2014.


Are you familiar with how baseball positions are numbered? 

Here's a quick tutorial: 

1 (pitcher), 2 (catcher), 3 (first baseman), 4 (second baseman), 5 (third baseman), 6 (shortstop), 7 (left fielder), 8 (center fielder), and 9 (right fielder).

Technically a designated hitter doesn't have a number, but if it did, logic dictates it would be "0."

So with that, the Rays in this game probably generated the first ever Tommy Tutone "8-6-7-5-3-0-9 (Jenny)" lineup. 

Check out the first seven hitters and see for yourself!
