Gedman Shows Off Versatility For Lowell

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
On Tuesday, UMass' Matt Gedman played all nine positions and picked up a save in the process as the Lowell All-Americans defeated the North Adams Steeple Cats, 3-2. With two outs in the ninth inning, after Gedman had played each position, Coach Jeff Kane walked to the mound and moved Gedman from first base to the pitcher's mound. Reliever Brenden Shepard moved to first base and Gedman induced a fly ball to left field to end the game and pick up the save. The feat that Gedman accomplished was a very rare one. The NECBL does not keep track of those stats, but the last time it was accomplished in Major League Baseball was in 2000.
