Russell Martin Wants To Play SS In WBC
Yankees free agent catcher Russell Martin has expressed an interest in playing the shortstop position for Team Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. Martin has never played professionally at short stop but he has played both SS and third base in high school, college, and for the Team Canada team before so it will not be out of the realm of possibilities. He has also played fifteen games at third base and one game at second base in the majors although he calls short stop his "natural position" so there is always that.
