[edit] Biographical Information

Pete Orr crop.JPG

Pete Orr is a prototypical utility player, being able to play both the infield and the outfield, although his most common position has been second base. He played in over 100 games for the Atlanta Braves in both 2005 and 2006, barely reaching 100 at-bats each year. He was used very rarely as a starter, getting most of his playing time as a pinch hitter, pinch runner or defensive substitute. He only played in 57 games for the Braves in 2007 before finishing the season with the AAA Richmond Braves. His batting average had fallen from .300 to .253 to .200 over the course of those three years. He was released by the Braves after the season and found work with the Washington Nationals in 2008, hitting .253 in 75 at-bats while also spending time with the AAA Columbus Clippers.

In contrast to his major league career, Orr has been a starter for Team Canada over the years, taking advantage of the shortage of quality middle infielders produced by the country. He played in the 2004 Olympics and the 2006 World Baseball Classic, and was Canada's starting second baseman in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
