Actually, four different players (Bert Campaneris, Cesar Tovar, Scott Sheldon, and Shane Halter) have played all nine positions in the same Major League game. Campaneris also pitched both right-handed and left-handed in the game in which he played all nine positions.

How many baseball games can a player play a week?

The number of game a professional baseball player can play depends on his position, health and manager. There are usually 7 games a week and depending on the team schedule sometimes there is an off day on Monday or Thursday. A healthy starting position player (a player who on defense plays as an infielder, outfielder or catcher) could play every game of the week. However, managers sometimes give their players a day off for health reasons or just a normal day off. Also bench players only play when the managers decide to put them in the game, so they only play 3 or 4 games a week. Moreover, pitchers play considerable less games than position player. Relief pitchers, those who pitch in the middle of the game, could play 2 to 4 game depending on the manager and the players abilities. Starting pitchers usually play at least once week and 1 or 2 starters pitch twice a week. Most baseball teams have 5 starters and pitchers are usually given 4 days of rest. Therefore, in a week of 7 games two pitchers on a team could pitch twice.
