I was looking only for guys who were pitchers and then moved to the outfield. Those "stunt" games by Halter and Sheldon don't interest me all that much since they weren't done because of any true baseball strategy.

Is it possible they didn't show up because they never recorded putouts or assists while pitching, or because they didn't bat while at that position?

McDowell didn't show up on either list for that game (he showed up for a different game) because he played BOTH RF and LF (and P) in the game you mention.

They made several righty / lefty switches in the game, and played the outfield corner positions based on which batter was up.

Even as a Yankee fan this was an amazing game.
