As in past years we somehow managed to plan the party on the day before a double header. Yet all the players that were at the party were at the games.
Not sure exactly how it came about but during the party Ken mentioned that he'd always wanted to play all 9 positions in a game. People agreed that it would be pretty fun and when it was game time on Sunday morning Ken started at 1st base.

He caught a pop up at Shortstop
Ken played all three outfield positions in one inning. He caught a fly ball in Left field, moved to Center field while Jeremy took Left for the second out, and then switched to Right field when he and Ron traded positions. This video made me laugh watching them switch positions.
Ken put on Catcher's gear to take a position he hasn't played since Little League
A picture I'll possibly never get again.
I put together a two minute video of Ken's catching debut.
And of course, I had to get a photo of him during one of his at bats. See the ball on it's way to the plate?
Thanks to all the players who gave up their fielding position for an inning to allow Ken to cross an item off his Bucket List.
The NABA Giant's 2011 season is over. But now it's Football season and our first Fantasy Football draft is Friday.
