Very hard to do, especially if the third guy that scores is a catcher.

At the time Sean said he was in the middle of changing some of the ways these players were recorded.

He's in a sort of statistical limbo, where there's no adequate description for him. Some years ago I saw a list of players who had homered with no position. These were players who homered after having pinch-hit or pinch-run earlier in the inning. The list, which went through 2001, had 18 names on it.
