Four guys have played 20 games at each in a season. Dave Roberts, in 1980, is the only player to do it since 1945. That year he caught in 22 games and played shortstop in 33 (in addition to 10 games in the outfield and 45 at the other infield positions)!

Scott Sheldon and Shane Halter also played all nine positions in one game, both in 2000, but didn't qualify for the batting title.
I was expecting to see Jim Leyritz.

(His pitching appearance came in a nineteen-inning game where he pitched four innings and took the loss.) It's even more impressive that way, since his team actually needed him to play all those positions, rather than doing it as a stunt.
