DateQuestionAnswer
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)One name I can think of for the "primary position as a professional player was pitcher? Or vice versa" question is Dave Duncan. He was a hitter as a player but a great pitching coach.
(Justin from Chicago, IL)
Oh, of course, yes. Was primarily trying to think of pitchers who became hitting coaches. Catchers-turned-pitching coaches have been a bit more common, starting (maybe) with Wilbert Robinson. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best team of Berts of all time? Rules: You can have anyone with a "bert" in his name -- Albert Pujols, Robin Roberts, David Robertson, Wilbert Robinson....
(Robert from DC)
Without spending too much time on this one, I'd go with these as my obvious picks:

1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Roberto Alomar
SS: Bert Campaneris
OF:Roberto Clemente
SP: Bert Blyleven
CP: Roberto Hernandez (R.J. Anderson)
